Kinetic Wind Spoon Sculpture
I saw a kinetic wind sculpture on Facebook and so I looked up a few ideas with how to make one. My husband was the brains behind this project and used a few ideas from various sources and added his own. Following is what we came up with.
Total Time: 4 hours
- plant stand
- flat spray paint
- wheel from a small bike
- fork and headtube from a larger bike frame
- JB weld steel stick
- 7 large spoons
- 3 long bolts
- drill and drill bit
- tap tool
- First, attach the tube head from the bike frame to the top of the plant stand by drilling three holes into the tube head and then using the tap tool to match the thread on the three bolts to hold the tube head in place. Add the glue on one side of the tube held to stabilize and hold it into place.
- Second, attach bike fork through the tube head.
- Third, prepare the spoons. Drill hole through bottom handle of each of the eight spoons. Use vice to bend each of the spoons at a ninety degree angle. Drill holes in the bike wheel equally spaced around the perimeter of the wheel for spoon placement. Attach the spoons with bolts and nuts to the wheel.
- Paint the tube head and fork and plant stand. Because of the spokes on the wheel, we were not able to paint it but it made a nice accent color. When dry, attach the wheel to the fork using the axle on the wheel to the fork (just like on a bike).
