Optical Illusion Wind Spinner

Introduction: Optical Illusion Wind Spinner

I used a 1x4 and ripped it down to 3/4 by 3/4

Step 1: Cut Your Piece

I cut my 6 inch’s from long end to long end you can go bigger if you want. Cut them on a 45 degree angle.

Step 2: Nail the Pieces Together

Nail group A together
Nail group B together
Nail group C together
Nail group D together

Step 3: Nail F and G to Piece a

Step 4: Nail E and G to B

Step 5: Nail C and D to F and H

Step 6: Nail B E G to the Rest of the Frame

When’s is done it should look like that

Step 7: Putty the Holes and Sand

Step 8: Paint

Paint it or stain it what ever you want

Step 9: Hang It

I used some swivel clip and mason line string

That is an awesome design! Well done!
It's hard to find blueprints for it...I do know of one blogger who used PVC pipe...I'm planning to use some of my old canvas stretcher bars, I think they'll be great for this project. I knew I'd have to cut the ends at a certain angle but thanks to your pictures, I know which side they'll need to be cut on. One last thing and a question...Did you use a nail gun? Also carpenter's wood glue? I cannot tell by the pictures for sure.
Anyway, thanks for sharing!
