I made a large wooden hygrometer a while ago and now wanted to try
make a smaller hygrometer. I use it to measure the relative humidity in my shop and to show customers how humidity makes changes in wood.

Since the gauge will be used for my work and my shop I made a slot the size of a business card so I can record the humidity cycles throughout the year.


Check out the video how I made it also how to make a small how box
to dry the wood.

I make digital hygrometers for a living, it’s great to see a wooden version. I may have to try building one myself now.

That is interesting I would like to see what you have. If you build one let me know how it goes.

Very nice device… clever

I watched the YouTube video and was a bit concerned about the cutting technique with fingers so close to blade and no riving knife. Cutting the parts would be safer with something like the Gripppppper.

Have your say...
