This is a very simple project that can be displayed alone or with other projects. The flying bird is cut from 1/4" wood. Use an eyelet screw for the hanger.
Portable shop air conditioner update:
A couple weeks ago I posted how I installed a portable air conditioner in my windowless garage workshop. I ran into a problem where the compressor would only run for a few minutes then shut off. This would leave the fan running but no cool air. After a few minutes the compressor would kick back on but repeat the cycle.
I explained in the post how I had cut a hole in the side door to vent the air conditioner to the outside. To help keep critters out I decided to install a plastic grate and a butterfly valve on the outside of the door covering the hole. This turned out to not be a good idea. The butterfly valve worked fine but it was restricting just enough air flow to cause the thermal fuse in the compressor to trip and shut the compressor off. After it cooled back down the compressor would come back on.
It took me a few days to figure out what was happening but when I removed the butterfly valve the air conditioner runs great now. It was 89 outside this afternoon and I was working in a comfortable 73 degree workshop. I could not be happier.
Several of you had emailed me interested in installing a similar system in your garage workshop. I wanted to pass this update on to any of you who might run into similar trouble.
