  • 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 )

                  Timberwolf has a 3/4" blade that is only .025" thick, so it works very well on a 14" wheel. Most 3/4" blades are .034" thick and it is hard to get proper tension o a 14" wheel with them. I tried a 3/4" blade from another company that is only .025" think, but they...

                  Spent yesterday cleaning up my shop - (once very two years!) and could not find my 3/4 inch BS wood slicer. Came in and discovered that I ordered and received a 1/2 inch wood slicer two years ago. (I keep the records on my computer.) I know I had a 3/4 inch at one time but finally figured out that was...

                  Here’s a thought. I have a friend who does amazing jewelry. She was on Etsy, Pinterest and her own site. One feeds the other. Could you do Pinterest with link to your site?...

                  well, the cabinets first. I emptied two yesterday and this is what I came home to after the farmers market today. Plus molding was taken down. Emptying lowers Sunday, taking down rest of uppers and by Wednesday will be ready to take out lowers, walls and floor. Need to be done that by Sat for the electricity...
