    Anders S. Lunde is the man who resurrected the whirligig from the ashheap of historical American culture. In the 1970′s, Lunde first investigated old whirligigs in New England, researched in the Library of Congress, and just plain hit the woodworking bench to figure out what makes a good whirligig work. Others have tried to copy him, but his whirligigs spin and turn and twist with a freedom and naturalness few can match. His political whirligig creations are snapped up immediately these days, because at 86 years old, there is no telling when he will stop. Simple, straightforward, and detailed, these designs and instructions will put you in the drivers seat for making any design you desire. It is the creative side of these wind machines that intrigues Lunde a lot. His other books continue his approach and offer many other interesting designs. Buy them all!

    The book has pictures and diagrams and suggestions. I got it to get someone interested in and fascinated by whirligigs. It hasn’t yet ignited him, but we’ll see.

    I ordered this book due to the excellent reviews it had, but i was very disappointed. The book is very outdated and for a newbie, I thought the instructions weren’t very clear.

    This is by far the most informative book on whirligig that I’ve came across. Fundamentals on mechanics and designs of whirligig at beginning of the book is a must read for anyone who is new to making whirligigs. I also like the variety of the designs included in the book with layouts and modification suggestions. Overall, great book! We really enjoyed making these and giving them out as gifts (and also selling a few to supplement our project fund!).

    This was bought as a birthday gift for my son-in-law who wants to build whirligigs. He seems quite pleased with the instruction book.
