Now this is "fynbrag" on "fyndraai"!!!!I better post this here as well before one of the local knife makers stabs me for posting this in the knife making thread
I received a WA Video showing a funny whirligig and I decided to give it a go, I did try searching for Templates but to no avail so I had to wing it, draw free hand and steal with my eyes from the video, it will never be on the same level as a wooden Landrover, but good for a laugh, and it actually worked too.
I drew the body shapes by hand, you may notice that I am no Michaelangelo but you can see its a person, after cutting out the shapes on cardboard I assembled them all to make sure it works before wasting my time and wood.

Once it was proved to work, I drew the figures on Coreldraw to cut them out of vinyl, which would make it easier to cut out. Now I dont have a laser or CNC so my Jigsaw would have to suffice.
For the crank I used a piece of wire, bent it as straight as I could with the required bends of course and assembled all the bits again, once I was happy with it all I pulled it all apart again and painted them all up before reassembling again and hoping that the wind will actually turn this thing.
And it did, my laughter shows how surprised I was that it actually did work
