  • 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 interested in this also. Thank you Dave for your work and that intriguing triangular bowl. Thank you John, for bringing this up.

                  I am having a time getting my mind around this. In square, rectangle and round I can usually see 3D in my mind, but I am having trouble with this one. It...

                  I just kept holding them against each other and saw the line one pass at a time. Much like you make an intarsia piece fit, that is off a little bit. These, of course, took many many passes. But it worked out....
