We're gonna make a cheap and funky weather vane, aka a wind vane, in the shape of a canoe paddle. Gather your materials from your junk bins and follow...
Find a fan, a length of pipe and some scrap wood.
Cut away the fan blades to fit your pipe.
This is the essence of your easy rotating wind vane.
Some screws, a couple of nuts and bolts, and you're ready for the wind.
We have a be nice comment policy. Please be positive and constructive.
