Topic tags/keywords: question cedar tablesaw arts and crafts

I want to make a wind spinner similar to many as seen on this list. There seems to be two different approaches to the size or shape of the individual wood blocks used to build them. One type uses a square profile, usually 3/4” x 3/4”. The other type uses a flat rectangular shape usually 1/8” x 3/4”.

My question is which works better? It would seem that the flat rectangular shape would be more aerodynamic.

I will be making my spinner out of cedar.

You mentioned a list. What list? I am not sure what you are talking about making, but cedar at 1/8” thickness is not very strong, in my experiance.

By list I meant this web site. Also I was mistaken in that most use 1/4” thick instead of 1/8”.

Have your say...
