Make a Wooden Wind Spinner!

I made a wooden Wind Spinner to hang on our front porch.  This is an easy Spring/Summer woodworking project that you can make in one day.  I tested it using the free WindPro18 18" Shop Fan that NewAir sent me.  Check out the video below.

If you need a good shop fan, check out the NewAir WindPro18 18" Wall Fan and get 15% OFF with promo code STEVE.  This fan has 3 speeds and puts out a lot of air for a nice cool breeze in the shop.  It can be mounted on a wall or ceiling to save floor space and it is quiet enough to have a regular conversation.  It easily made my Wind Spinner spin from about 15 feet away.  It comes with some mounting hardware and a pull chain extension, but I had to make my own Van Halen striped pull chain.

The weather is finally warming up here in Georgia, so I put the Wind Spinner outside under our front porch.  It is fun to watch it twirl and the neighbors love it too!  Now go make one yourself and impress the neighborhood, but don't be surprised if you are asked to make some more!

Live Edge River Table (Must See Woodworking Project)

For this year's April Fools video, I made this Live Edge River Table using hydrogen and oxygen.  It is unlike any other river table that you've seen before.  Check out my video of this project below and I hope you get a laugh or two out of it!

Here is a close-up picture of my Live Edge River Table.  It's awesome!
