Very nice! The oak will age and get even more beautiful.

This will be a very nice and USEFUL gift. I have these weather instruments in my home. It’s actually kind of neat, as a tropical storm or hurricane is coming, to watch the barometric pressure drop like a rock.

Thanks, and yes, I also used the clock kit from WC. Forty bucks is a little steep to me for the clock parts. I will try to find a cheaper place to find the parts.

I did not think about a venting hole. I am not sure it needs one. it is not 100% sealed. I will see how it does.

Really nice weather station….......sure is a giant step above those off the shelf pos(s). I’ve wanted one for many moons…..(weather guys in these parts don’t have a window in their weather guessing room) I feel a design session comin’ up.
Kudos to you. The recipient of this piece is a fortunate person.
