This came about from my girlfriend ending up with custody of boxes and boxes of misc RC airplane and helicopter parts. I decided to put them to use in this swiveling contraption that at a glance gives a good idea of wind speed and direction. I got a big grin when i finally mounted her up and watched her slowly turn toward the prevailing gentle breeze and go to work.

Look closely and you’ll see the lone piece of wood (Spanish Cedar) i felt obligated to include to rightfully share this with my fellow lumberjocks. It was so fun i think i’ll make another. Thanks for looking!

I thought the same thing David, It appears that he still has 34 mins left in his edit time, so hope that he is watching.

Sweet. You should put some whirly gig thingy on the next one.

You do always have such a big grin,

I guess all of our minds run the same – I read it, then reread it and thought, “that’s probably a little more than I wanted to know first thing in the morning”.
