This Angel Whirligig was my 11-year-old daughter’s idea and it was her entry for the 2014 Whirligig Wars contest. She wanted to make a whirligig version of mom’s Willow Tree Angel of Hope figurine. When the wind blows, the angel lifts up her lantern.
It’s made from solid pine, except for the propeller and cloud fin that were cut from thin plywood. My daughter was able to use the scroll saw, drill, drill press, sander, wire cutters, and screwdriver on this project. She did all of the painting herself. I only helped out with drawing the template and making a few table saw cuts.
