My manager recently retired and this is the weather station I made for him as his retirement gift. The piece of wood is one that we actually cut down at some point last year at the park. I forgot to take a picture of the back before I gave it to him but it is still very natural on the back and sides. I used a small cut off piece as a stabilizer leg, I also drilled some vent holes in the back for the instruments to work better. To cut this on the bandsaw I first gave my self a flat spot to work from using the jointer. Finish is just spray poly.
We have a laser engraver that we use for plant signs and other signage around the park. The plaque was made with that and then drilled for mounting. The quote came about as he is a fan of following the weather and has done some sailing in the past.
Thanks for looking.
