  • Whirligig

    A request by my neighbor for a whirligig, this was my choice. Whirligigs are one of my favorite things to make. Over my long years of woodworking I have made countless whirligigs of all types. comments are always welcome 01010023.JPG

        That's a good one. Nice job. They are fun to make and provide fun entertainment. They can also keep the moles away!

          I had the road runner but my neighbor liked it so much that I had to give it to him.

                Rolf, I use White pine or Cedar but the most important aspect is the painting technique. I always put on a white primer, use fine steel wool to remove imperfections, Apply exterior outdoor paint, rub fine steel wool after each application when dry and final finish I apply clear poly ( spray can )

                  When people come into ArtCrafters and ask about a scroll saw, I say it is similar to a sewing machine except with small blades.

                  Me - also! I drove from Memphis to Dallas yesterday in heavy rain all the way. Could not use the cruise control. My leg was in a knot.

                  Having said that, I can sit still at the scroll saw for about an 30 minutes at the most before I have to move around; On the lathe, I can also stand in...

                  I've lured a husky neighbor with the promise of a turned pen. Now we are just waiting for the d()*& rain to stop so we can get the minivan around to the back steps into the basement, and get it down stairs. All my neighbors know that, when they help me - they walk away with a priceless work of art...

                  Scrappile I like that engine hoist. When we moved into this house back in 96 One of the first things I did was put a loft in the garage and provided a place to hang a chain hoist for working on my car. The roll around hoist has some advantages over my setup.

                  I have two variable speed controllers one is on my Digital embroidery machine(inherited from my Mom) and I also have a Rampower carver with the electronic foot pedal. The variable speed on both of those gives much more control. especially on the power carver....
