Instructions for Making Things from Cans

I'm looking for instructions on how to make a "tin man" and "wind spinners" and "air planes" from pop cans. And any other items.


I love making things such as these.

I'm also looking for instructions to make whirly gigs, I'm having a family reunion, and want to make gifts for my guests to take home. Any more fun "things" or ideas would be appreciated. It's a "Scottish" theme.
Thank you,

can somebody tell me how to build a chair out of soda cans please its for the science fair.

Editor's Note: Here are some pictures of stools and tables. I haven't found any plans for a chair but there may be one out there. From looking at these you may get some ideas. It appears they are glued together.
