Windmill

I built this windmill in my basement workshop. It stands 12 feet tall at the top of the blade so it had to be built in sections. I spent many hours constructing this project. This was built entirely from a plan I had in my head for months. The blade and head both spin.

  • You did a great job! Especially not being able to construct it all due to ceiling height. Very nice.

  • This is such a great piece of work! How great that you were able to create the entire thing from scratch and from your own design. The paint colors really are spot-on, too. Thanks for sharing!
