Dutch Garden Windmill Part 3.

windmill 2Cedar wood looks noble and resistant. The lining of the windmill consists of boards arranged on supports like scales and glued to them. The rotating overlay consists of segments cut in the form of an arc, glued to the plate of the smaller base. Attach the guiding system and the bearing trestle of the aluminum wheel shaft with wings to the oblique front wall and the base plate. In the bearing bracket, we pasted a perpendicular rotary axis made of a round wooden bar from below. The overlay is covered with a waterproof plywood with a thickness 2 mm.
The windmill wings consist of crossed slats, connected in the middle on the overlay, on which we have embedded the wing surface structure, made of round bars and boards. The rotation of the wings is due to the partially oblique arrangement of the holes for the rods. Wind causes tension in the waterproof material stretched over the wings.

4. Double beams are glued to the octagonal plate. The distances between the beams exactly match the thickness of the brackets.

5. The double supports are glued to the supports as spacers. So that the elements are equal, we prepare a template.

6. Glue the supports into the cuts of the beams and prepare the counter-element for the base plate, placed on the other side.

7. The gallery floor segments consist of boards glued to the frame. Cut the frame corners diagonally.

8. We arrange the individual segments and glue them to the double beams. We paste the posts between the ends of the beams and the railing.

9. We arrange the covering slats like this, to fit between the brackets. Then we stick the boards and cut them to the correct width.

10. We adjust the facing and glue it to the brackets. To access the interior, Leave the two fields unsticked.

11. We stick and drill the guide and the headstock of the windmill shaft. The axis of rotation of the overlay is placed from the bottom.

12. The plywood segments form the scaffolding of the overlay roof. We adjust the plywood strips, stick them and fix them with adhesive tape.

13. We drill holes for round bars in the leaf elements, to allow the wings to rotate when assembled.

14. The best covering of beech wood elements (np. sticks) there is a weather-resistant paint.

15. Colorful accents on the windows, we paint the door and the main cross of the wings with weather-resistant paint.

The wings are trimmed with sailcloth. The sail is best sewn from non-woven plastic, which will not be soaked in rain. Stitch the eyes to attach it with special tongs.
