Overview

Windmill, wind machine, wind toy! They're all names for whirligigs — charming wind-driven, toy-like objects that have delighted observers for hundreds of years. This clearly written, amply illustrated guide provides step-by-step directions and full-size patterns for creating over 30 of these engaging objects.
Following an introduction that describes the parts of a whirligig and lists the materials you'll need to assemble, finish, and mount your completed project, you'll find easy-to-follow instructions for creating a variety of these captivating collectibles. There are arm-waving whirligigs in the shape of Doctor Doolittle, Pinocchio, and a happy sailor; winged whirligigs that include a coo-coo bird, a guardian angel, and a flying elephant; mechanical whirligigs such as Danny the Dinosaur and David the Wood Chopper; as well as such intricate subjects as a baseball player, a cheerleader, a fisherman in a boat, clashing knights, a patriotic drummer, and a signaling scout.
With an abundance of illustrations to help bring each project to a successful completion, the only other thing you'll need is some wind!

I can't see paying that price for a book of roughly 30 patterns. The author and publisher must be very proud of this book to charge that price. No thanks, I'll go elsewhere.
