Woodsmith Weathervane Plan

WOODSMITH-WEAHTERVANE-PLANS-GROUP

While weathervanes aren’t used as much anymore, building one is still an adventure and a fun journey that blends woodworking and metalworking. Sprinkle in a little sculpture and you’ll end up with something like you see here —a creative, fun weathervane for your home, garden, or even your barn. One of my favorite things about this weathervane is the ability to change the design. Here, I’ll walk you through how we built this one. But, half of the enjoyment of woodworking is making something your own. So feel free to take liberties and customize your weathervane. As far as our weathervane goes, there are some great techniques here. The stars and directions are made from brass. They’re simple to do and you’ll get some soldering practice in. The arrow and moon involve some free-forming with hand tools. And maybe my favorite part is the sphere. It’s a blast to do on the lathe using either a jig, or a cool technique using a light and shadows. So sharpen your pencils, get your creative juices flowing, and let’s get started.

We offer the Woodsmith Weathervane plan as a downloadable PDF or a printed format that we ship to you.
