This is my version of an Arts and Crafts Glass Wall Barometer. I purchased the glass component from Klockit. This was an easy project. The overall length is 18” and the width is 7”. I used mortise and tenon joinery where possible. This is my design as I have not ever seen one like this before. It is made of ash with an oak stain and 4 coats of lacquer. This was fun and only took me a couple of days to make this project.

Hey Don…..Stellar job on the barometer….Nice work, my friend…I’ve never seen on like that before..How exactly does it work.? Good wood you used to make it….I have always thought that ash and oak looked so much alike, it’s hard to tell them apart sometimes….Congrats on a job well-done…..!!

Nicely done! I love these. Mine leaked blue food-colored water all over the floor during a heat wave in TX… ;^)
