I have made two Whirligig.  They are both on this page.

 

1.  Model A and Model T Whirligig (Nov 2014).

 

I made this for a friend in Texas.  It is actually her design.  The model T in front is being cranked by her husband, while the Model A is being push.  Her and their dog are waiting for the fun ride ahead.  Both figures are propelled by a fan in front.  This Whirligig is 28" long with a 14" diameter fan.

2.  See Saw Whirligig (May 2014).

 

I made this whirligig in May 2014 for a friend in Texas.  She  sent me a picture of an antique whirligig and asked if I could make one similar.  This whirligig is 26” tall, the fan is 18” in diameter, and made of a variety of wood.  The fan is made of Tupelo, the seesaw and figures are of Basswood, the green box and stand of pine.  It is painted in water-based acrylics and then roughed up.  I purposely scratched the wood and sanded some of the corners lightly, and also used some light oak stain to fade the acrylic pain to give it an old time look.
