Here are some shots of Weather Stations III & IV. The one on the left is Mahagony/Ebony. The right is Jatoba/Ebony. In these versions the wings are 15 degrees inward and the tops and bottoms are symetrical. The middle space is 1 1/4” wide. Overall I think these dimensions are the most pleasing to the eye.
You can complete these in a day if you have the tools, and you can really go fast if you have already made the templates. Plenty of details in the two blog series: Weather Station I http://lumberjocks.com/newTim/blog/7799 and Weather Station III & IV http://lumberjocks.com/newTim/blog/8317. These projects gave me some much needed experience with designing and making templates, lots of drilling, and a chance to modify designs.
Oh yeah, one more thing. Feel free to copy or modify the design. I’d love to see pictures of your versions.
