Showcase cover image for Wooden Windmill

Project Information

I have been playing around with the idea of making a windmill from wood for several years now. I live out in the sticks and you would think that I could find a windmill to copy but all of them around here have been converted to solar. That made me go from memory, so here's my creation. This is constructed from pine scraps that I had laying around. Hope you enjoy it.

How tall is the windmill? I'm thinking about doing something similar.

It is about 27 inches tall at the tip of the blades.
