Description

Uncle Sam Whirligig (17-1/2"H)


*** This is a made-to-order item. I do not have one in stock. I will make one to your specifications - just for you. Made-to-Order items generally ship about 10 business days after the order is received. However, if I have an order backlog, it could be longer. If timing is an issue, please contact me to find out my current schedule. ***

All of my Whirligigs are handcut wood, then handpainted with exterior acrylic paint.* I use brass hardware (screws, washers, bearing, propeller and pivot tubes), which makes the whirligig more durable.

**When you purchase a whirligig, you WILL NOT receive a whirligig post/stake. You will receive a 5" nail and mounting instructions ONLY. If you wish to purchase a ready-made whirligig post, there are several variations of posts for sale in my shop.

Instructions for whirligigs placed in the yard:
A one inch diameter 36" long round wooden dowel works well for whirligigs placed in the yard. Drill a 3/16" hole in one end of the dowel approximately 1-1/2" deep. The pointed end of the nail provided goes in the hole. The dowel is put into the ground about 8-10 deep. Place the whirligig on the nail, inserting the nail into the brass tube on the underside of the whirligig.

Instructions for whirligigs attached to decks or wooden fences:
A 2" x 2" wooden post works well for whirligigs attached to a deck or wooden fence. The length of the 2" x 2" post should be cut to 10-12 inches long. Drill a 3/16" hole in one end of the post approximately 1-1/2" deep. The pointed end of the nail provided goes into the hole. The post can be screwed or nailed to the deck or fence. Place the whirligig on the nail, inserting the nail into the brass tube on the underside of the whirligig.

I ACCEPT CUSTOM ORDERS. Let me know what you are interested in. I have created numerous whirligigs: Pelican, Bee, Chicken, Hummingbird, Angel, Cardinal, Ladybug, Bluejay, Barn Swallow, Flying Pig, Frog, Mallard.....
Please allow 10 business days for your whirligig to be handcrafted. I want to give time and attention to your order.

*Please note that each whirligig is slightly different-handcut and handpainted, with some variations in color shades and details.

    OMG AWESOME, She needs to be under yard art. She has so much better quality then anyone on etsy for yard art. She really thinks outside the box and comes up with great ideas. Doing more for Christmas this year. She is so much fun to work with. Great ideas and her finished product is stunning. Thanks Kim

    WOW, AWESOME, so well made and realistic. Detail, Detail and more Detail. Really looks like a true fox. The front and back legs that spin are a work of art. She keeps in touch with you and shows you pictures before she starts to work on it. She keeps you informed. Shipping is wonderful and well packed so you can even use the box for storage of it. I Just started a Christmas max running from Grinch. So excited to see that. Thanks Kim
