I built this KISS whirligig for a contest that Steve (Woodworking for Mere Mortals) and Laney (A Simple Design of Ocala) are hosting. Here is a link to the youtube video I submitted for the contest that shows it in action along with some of the details of the project. Click here to see the youtube video.

I did not expect to see anything quite this far from the norm when I read the contest rules. Good luck. I commend you for your well thought out and executed design that is a huge leap away from the farmer on his tractor!

Oh, the video is very well done too. And fun to watch.
