To further the abilities of my weather junkie Dad, this year the weather station went digital… Made of spalted maple, the box containing the weather station is supported on a walnut stand by brass rods, which you can change the position of to change the tilt of the entire box.

This is one of those cases where what I had planned didn’t work (I forgot that I had to be able to get the weather station to change the batteries… opps) but the redesign proved to be much better that what I had originally planned and I am very pleased with how it turned out.

Looks great! I just got a weather station a few days ago. This is a great idea.
