A project from my high school days incorporating multiple techniques. The design was suggested by my German teacher but I replaced the traditional Christmas ornamentation with my personal interests.
Elements were scrollsawn, carved, and turned. The edge banding was handmade and there are intarsia scenes on the propellers.

Fun project. Nicely done.
I have had good intentions of building a large one ever since I saw one in a German Xmas shop that was about 5 feet tell. That was 10 years ago so it may never happen. I did buy a small one and my wife brings it out every Xmas for the dining room table..
All those candles must generate quite a heat wave to spin the blades. Do those upper candles burn the blades?

Pretty wild and uniquely done!

That might take off with all that candle power.
