Wednesday Woodworking – kids projects and a final remodel task

This week we’ve got the grand kids here so we’ve been doing so kid’s woodworking in the shop.  First project nearing completion is this wooden wind spinner we saw on Wood Working for Mere Mortals.  We’re making two.  Here’s the progress as of today:

Working on the backside of this one.

One side completed.  Next we'll flip it over and paint the other side.

And finally I had to make a box to cover the transformers and wiring for the new track lighting in the living room.  This was a fast project and still needs to be painted the same color as the house.

This wall wart covers the transformers for the low voltage track lighting.

Next week I’ll have pictures of the garden stool we’re making.

If you need me – I’ll be in the shop,

    The wind spinners look amazing, and not so difficult — but how do they keep their shape? Are the pieces glued together?

      They’re on a threaded rod with a nut top and bottom – tightening those keeps the shape and lets me try new configurations to see if I can get them to spin better.
