A hand built wooden prop. is a thing of beauty!

I wonder whether anyone makes decent-looking propeller blades to replace the flat things used in most ceiling fans. Keeping them light enough would be a challenge, but...

(I have a fan whose motor cowling already suggests the nose of a small plane; it'd be fun to complete that illusion.)

(Hm. Quick websearch suggests that I might be able to do something with doped fabric over a framework. Finicky construction, but it's a traditional aviation material, albeit not for this purpose.)

Type "wooden propeller" into the search box. First hit.
