This project is based on an Engine Order Telegraph, a device that was used to communicate between the engine and the bridge. It’s made of Mahogany, Hickory, and Walnut veneer (for the faceplate). I had originally planned on making the stand out of hickory, but found I didn’t have enough, so I repurposed this stand from another project I had turned it for and then didn’t use.

I think the mahogany is the better choice anyway. It is more reminescent of the metal that these were made from.

This was a fun project. I hope you enjoy it.
