« Part 2: Its a bird... its a plane... Part 3 of Weather Station series Part 4: Initial Glue Up »

I thought about these next steps all day today. This is another great thing about woodworking. I always have something to think about, something to plan, something to look forward to. This is turning out to be a fun little project. Next step is to figure out the style of base and top. I’m debating whether (pun) to do a pivoting top or a hinged top like a box lid. In either case I’m thinking about adding small magnets to hold it in place. It will give me something to think about…

I was wondering what that big hole in the top was for… Great idea!

There’s a little blister of glass, probably from the filling process, that is sticking out so I had to fashion a groove adjacent to the top hole to provide clearence. So far so good…
