This is my second walnut and alder weather station. I mitered the corners on the alder and chamfered the two pieces of walnut. I left 1/2” gap behind the alder so if it is hung on the wall air can still get behind the unit. I think it will be better suited to sit on a mantle or shelf. It was finished with a wiping varnish.

What happened to the hand on the last gauge ? I bought a set of gauges from Woodcraft and one of the hands never moves at all… Your station is excellent !

I wondered if anyone would catch the broken hand on the hygrometer. i dropped it when installing it. I have a new one on order. Thanks for the positive feedback.

Thanks. Rain today turning to snow tonight. We’ve had some unseasonably warm weather lately, so I’m ready for some snow!

That is nice. I’ve always liked projects with contrasting woods.
