Wooden wind generator
 
Wooden blades? No, all wood (nearly) construction! Pretty cool actually. Doesn't produce much power though. But, it is pretty small too.

I was just thinking about that wind turbine the other day, I read about it when they had the story in home power 8 years ago, my favorite part is the magnetic dirt from the driveway.

lol yeah I thought that was pretty ingenious!

This one's cool too. More metal but more power. Real bearings help. Wood - AX, another wooden wind generator.

It's projects like this that give otherpower credibility, sure they made a wind generator out of wood and it didn't perform as well as something you buy, but it performed as well as one made out of wood and on a budget could do, because it was designed well from the ground up instead of just tossing together random parts.

too much for me

It's cool that it's made out of wood instead of plastic.

I would like to thanks for the time you've contributed in composing this post. This is great.

The power ratings usually given by the manufacturers for wind turbines are nearly useless, in that they are determined at wind speeds much higher that you will normally see. A good rough formula to keep in mind in evaluating different wind turbines
