100% recycled everything. The meters are from a retrofitted power station on the N. Island of New Zealand, the wood is quartersawn cedar from a kitchen cabinet shop which regularly puts out their offcuts for the public to take away.
The meters have actually been recalibrated to read 0-800ma on the left meter ( yes, the one marked, yikes, kV) and 0-15v on the right one ( the one marked Amps!) – well, I know what it is – in any case, handy and in regular use for a small battery charger that I built.
The finish is linseed oil.
Just thought I would show that wood can be functional again in other things besides furniture, shop tools or jigs – old and new technologies can indeed mix. I really like the thought of bringing back wood into our everyday items instead of plastic or steel. One of these days I’ll tackle that wooden computer case!
