This is my version of a yard spy i did for my girlfriends yard. There is one similar posted somewhere on here but i can’t seem to find it using obvious tag words. I did find a few others on the internet to view and decided to add my own twist. He’s double sided, which means he gets viewed from two directions! Guess that makes him a double agent spy.

He’s made mostly with 3/4” BC ext plywood with a few pieces of Spanish Cedar.

Thanks or looking!

Love it! If it were a cop with a radar gun maybe people would slow down in the neighborhood.

Cool project!

@KayBee … Cop with a radar gun … hmmm another idea for the list. Maybe it will get the punks to slow down on my street. At least for a little while >:-)

Very cool – my HOA will probably send me a fine, but it may be worth it!
