Here’s a little weather station that now hangs in our living room. It’s made of padauk, maple and black walnut finished with tung oil.

Bill -

Very interesting contrast between the padauk, maple and walnut. That would be a wonderful addition to any room.

I love using contrasting woods, they play well off of each other.

Thanks guys. I love this project. It couldn’t be easier. Though, I didn’t have the right size round-over bit (xmas list ;) ), so I used a cove bit to make a cove in a sanding block and went to town on the edges.
