The thumbnail doesn’t show this one well… It is a galileo thermometer with some extra bits in it. I made it with cocobolo and maple. I cut the dovetail joins by hand using a hand saw, my first attempt at this. It worked out ok. The back looks a bit more sketchy.
I like the cocobolo though, lovely wood. I discovered it was really hard to put anything more than a wax finish on, I ended up just buffing it on my buffing wheel. The tung oil just wiped off because it was so oily.
