Plywood and Cedar Windmill

Plywood and Cedar Windmill

This windmill is made from ACX plywood (tower) and Western Red Cedar (blades and rudder) which were reclaimed from the 4X4 posts of a torn down cedar fence.  It has a ‘Lazy Susan’ bearing for directional facing and pillow blocks and shaft for the blades. It faces and turns in the slightest breeze. The purpose is to cover and hide the unsightly well casing which is under it. The height is  about seven feet from the ground to highest arc of the blades.
