The woodchopper, a whirligig for the garden

We were very surprised to receive this gift from my younger daughter’s partner’s father.

When we were last in Canberra we had admired a wind driven woodchopper he had made for my daughter and unknown to us he decided to make one for us too.

The whimsy of the chopper reminds me of my childhood as there used to be one similar in the village where I lived.

If you want to make one for your garden you can find a wonderful collection of wind action project plans at this site.
