Weather Station in a Box 2.0

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.
