    Default shi shi odoshi bird scarer

    I was looking for DIY designs for one of these but didnt know what they were called.
    they are suposed to fill a cup until it drops,spills out the water and bobs up again, the othere end hitting a rock with a loud clack.Supposedly scares birds and deer
    my kids want a japanese courtyard and want me to make one.
    the bamboo can be bought from up market florists for not too much dollars.
    does anyone have a DIY design?

    A quick google of "shishi odoshi plans" brought up quite a few hits.

    The first few at the top all seem to lead to:

    I may be weird, but I'm saving up to become eccentric.

    Plenty of pics on this google image search here.

    Open one of the pics for more info on them. I reckon they're pretty cool, just a little out of place in my aussie backyard

    Edit: third pic on the google image search has a link to directions on making one.


    Cheers...............Sean

    Japanese gardens are for me the ultimate, they can be one of the closest things to nature if done right. I havent had a client want one yet but I did get involved in building one through a school and tafe project a few years back.

    Just make sure with the Shishi-odoshi to run the pump to the bamboo tube (blocked off at one end) and connect the pivot at a point that will result it turning foreward and hitting the rock below once filled with enough water.
