I like it very much. Care to share where you found the design or pattern. I can see a few of those around our place

These are called wind spinners. I got my idea from Wood Working for Mere Mortals. I did some research on the web and found that most wind spinners use rather flat shaped wood pieces rather than square. I also used a fishing ball bearing swivel instead of the simple ping and clevis one.

The wife loves it, she is the one that took the pictures. In fact this project got posted on her Facebook before I was able to post it here.

Beautiful work! That’s way too cool. It looks simple but I know it take a lot of patience and talent to finish it. Excellent.
