Jaipur, May 22 (ANI): An innovative carpenter gifted with a technical bent of mind has developed a variety of ceiling fans made of wood!
Carpenter-technician Suresh Sharma, 40, claims that all of the 104 models of fans have been designed and developed by him. These handmade fans are unique and different as none of the designs have been repeated or copied.The smallest fan in his collection is an 8-inch fan and the biggest one being 11 feet long!
The wooden body fans that run by electricity like normal ceiling fans, have earned him quite popularity here. These fans captivate attention, as one finds blades of ceiling fans made of wood. The users can enjoy cool air.
“These fans are different in a way as the wooden blades of the fan are natural. They are not made of metal. The temperature does not affect the blades of the fan. Outside temperature is ineffective on the wooden fan and thus the fan spreads cooler air,” said, Suresh Sharma.
Suresh has taken 13 years to develop various creative works that include making wooden fans. Basically these extraordinary looking fans are made of pure wood and blow the air like any ordinary fan.
He had felt driven at first to try his hand on making fans after he repaired his grand fathers’ very old fan. It motivated him to explore his latent talent in making fans. Today, he has a wide collection of wooden fans.
As these fans are completely designed, carved and assembled by artisans and are expensive.
Suresh says that the advantage of a wooden fans is that it is shock-proof, which makes safe to handle in day-to-day life.
For this extraordinary work, Sharma has been listed in Limca Book of Records and he is very keen to have his innovation also endorsed by the Guinness Book of World Records.
On his part, Suresh Sharma is very enthusiastic about his innovation and wishes that there should be commercial production of wooden fans.Suresh Sharma wishes that his innovative fan is patented and also gets a brand name so that he could sell more of these wooden fans. (ANI)
