  • 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 )

                  I am thinking that the light comes up from the base and when the cutout is turned it also changes the pattern on the base.

                  Nope just went back and watched again. Sure would like to find some pattern for that.

                  Wolfenstein was, is still great. back in the early 80s I worked as a repair tech for Covox. We made Sound Master sound cards for Apple, Commador, and IBM. Part of the system was voice recongition. Lost many hours trying to get voice commands to work with the card.

                  I looked at their website and it appears to me it is for local pickup only. You would have to call and see what can be done but I bet it would double the price....
