The Bluebird Whirligig Hardware Kit will simplify making the Bluebird Whirligig. Start with a copy of the plan that is sold separately, select the wood of your choice. We recommend an outdoor friendly wood or marine grade plywood. Use the Bluebird Whirligig parts Kit to help you finish the project. You'll also need plywood for the whirligig blades. Our plans are designed to use 5/32" marine grade plywood. This is our #7002 Birch plywood. We sell it as 1/8" but it is closer to 5/32". Most other 1/8" plywoods will be slightly under 1/8" thickness.
The Bluebird Whirligig Parts Kit includes:
Blade Propellor Hub. (Clockwise).
2 Blade Propellor Hub. (Cntr Clockwise).
Brass Drive Shaft Wire.
Brass Piston Wire.
Stainless Steel Pivot Nail.
Brass Pivot Tube.

You'll also need some paint to finish your whirligigs. A Bluebird Ready to Assemble Whirligig Kit is also available if you prefer not to cut things out yourself.
