HOW TO CLEAN BONES AND ASSEMBLE ANIMAL SKELETONS
For those of you who are new to this location, this site is all about the preparation and articulation of animal skeletons - OR - turning a dead animal into a clean set of bones and assembling those bones into a complete skeleton.
It is also an introduction to myself, a forty-year veteran of professional skeleton building.
It is also a blatant advertisement for a series of ten Bone Building Books I've written.
These books are a series of manuals explaining how to clean, prepare, and articulate different animal skeletons in a simple step-by-step manner
Each manual is suitable for enthusiasts, teachers and/or students desiring to do a museum quality skeleton on a limited budget.
Manuals available as printed and digital books.
For the last 25 Alaska Winters I have been illustrating animal bones from different views. Some of these illustrations have made their way into the Bone Building Books. It has been apparent that some bone enthusiasts have been collecting these manuals just for the illustrations and not because they had any intent of building a skeleton. So, for those who just want it for the pictures (sorry, no centerfold) - for the first time - here is a collection of just the bone illustrations. These are arranged by species of different land mammals from the Northwestern United States.
