  • Has anyone done one of these?

    What i am looking for is doing a whirlygig. Just a simple one because it would be my first one.
    What would you suggest to do?

    I'd just order a pattern and a kit from somplace like wildwood or cherry tree. Looks to me like they are a snap to build, it's the painting that takes some skill.

      I've always thought they were neat but have been a little apprehensive to put one in the yard for fear the high winds we get in the hollow would have it off the stand and running across the yard. Just did a quick look for any patterns and came up with this site:

      These are pretty basic but mightbe worth a try. They're FREE...

                Its a marathon not a dance. My 14 year old grandson ran a 8:50 mile in the 10k and finished 150 out of 1550 runners! My 12 year old granddaughter ran a 11:16 mile and came in 661 out of 1600 runners. Beat her mother by 100th of a second! I’m sure Sarah let her cross the line first. Tomorrow is the...

Between that and her alzheimers, it has been an interesting couple of days. Once she is released from the hospital, she will go to an...

                These items, except the Christmas sign, are for 2 orders. Had a tough time this week, that brick wall kept getting in my way! Other than the market, I’m off until Monday! I decided to raise the price of the Christmas sign to $40. Tomorrow will be a heat wave - 45 at 6am! Mostly sunny. We’ll see...
