walnut woman

I've just started another sculpture. This woman will be both carved and assembled. using this beautiful Black Walnut wood given to me by a friend i'll make an articulated female figure. I'm hoping to find some type of ball joint to stand in for actual joints. i'm not sure exactly how that problem will be solved, but if anyone has a suggestion i'd be happy to entertain it. i'm looking for hardwared that is both strong and positionable. for example, if i raise the arm i would like to stay in place, either by friction or by tightening. Below is a picture of her legs. I have the pelvis, feet, and right arm/shoulder ready for rough out.
