Hi James,
Also living in northern Ab. near Peace River. I haven't seen any plans for windturbine blades but airplane propellers were all made from wood at one time. Maybe that is a place to start looking.

cchowland Welcome to the forums James,

Haven't at the wind thing to much yet, but have looked at the solar systems. a lot 10KW sytems are popping up around here as Ontario Hydro (Hydro 1 now) is offering $.82/KW (government funded of course-scary!).

bobbotron Hi James,

Haven't done that before, but considering making a small wind generator for my cottage lot. How big of a generator are you planning on making? Horizontal or vertical?

Mike James, If you research the blades and come up with a simple shape that works you can create a pattern and use it to make exact duplicates.

ggom20 Welcome!
Sure you will find help from people here.

Thought you need to have all your wind blades identical for vibrations.
Maybe you could have a look on machines that makes 3d copies of the first model
you make.
There are quite a few on youtube , even seen a fairly big one made of wood beams.
This is just the idea
