That came out great Thinman. I like the design and choice of woods. I didn’t see Ryan’s and think i will steal the idea from you.

Looks really nice front and back. Where did the gauges come from?

Dusty, that is juniper in all its glory. No color added.Hallmark, the gauges are just cheapies from the local hardware store.

Very nice project. May I ask where you found the gauges… and their diameter ? They look nicely larger than what I am used to seeing.

Thanks for the feedback on the Juniper…I’ve never had a chance to work with it (yet).How do your gauges compare to these from WoodCraft ?http://lumberjocks.com/projects/9902

David and Dusty, The gauges are pretty much bottom shelf cheapies that have been laying around here forever. They fit a 2 1/4 inch hole. The gauges Dusty used in his weatherstations appear to be of a much higher quality. Those weatherstations are fabulous by the way. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/9902

Thank you very much for the compliment, T-man : )This is the kit that I bought from WoodCraft :http://www.woodcraft.com/Product/2020411/22112/Highlander-Weather-Station-Plan-and-Components.aspxI just supplied my own woods and made my own profiles because I think the basic “ogee” bit style is kind of boring. The plans that come with the kit are very well done.The Galileo thermometer really catches your eye on a sunny day : )
