Building a Windmill in Classic Style
I decided to go with basswood for this one, and began with a precut base I had on hand that became the base for a simple frame made of basswood. The base is 60mm square and the height of the frame is about 1" high. The references show a pretty tall structure and I want something that will give a decent sized diameter to the blades of the windmill so the dimensions felt right.
So now the big problem...how to construct the blades???
...I'll have to sleep on that problem...any ideas are most welcome!
