This is the second plaque that I have made like this. This one is painted vice using different flavors of wood.

It’s about 30 inches tip to tip. Made of Sapele and Maple. I planed down to ¾” and shaped the blades using mostly a belt sander as seen in the last two pictures. It rotates using a 3” lazy susan. I finished with 4 coats of Arm-R-Seal and buffed with buffing wheels on my lathe.

Knowing people will want to spin it when they see it, I am using a French cleat to keep her snug on the wall.

Super slick. I could imagine that motor running when it’s spinning
