The hardware (the instruments and Galileo thermometer) was a kit from Woodcraft given to me by my daughter and son-in-law this Christmas (2007). The funny part is that I had obtained Galileo thermometers and the other instruments to make one for myself and as gifts a few years ago.

Nice design. This is on my “to do” list, for one of these days. Just a temp and humidity for the shop. Not as nice as this one.

Hi Hutch,

This is a nice gift and quite practical. It is something that is a great conversation piece.

Thanks for the post.

Hutch thanks for the new idea! Not another one. Every time I looks at someone’s post my list gets long and trout season opens Saturday!

Hutch, Welcome Aboard.
Great project did you get the Galiileo from woodcrafters as well? My wife loves these and she finally got one a for years ago but I am thinking this would be a very nice project or at least encasing another one in wood for her. The one we have seems way to fragile.

Thanks for posting look forward to more in the future.

Good job Hutch. I have the three instruments and some oak, you may have provided the inspiration.

It was a quick project, probably only 4 hours total time spread over four days. The finish is Shellac which dries quickly.

well hello and thank you very much ! I made one for my Dad and he loves it …I got the kit at Woodcraft as well and followed their plans except I used different router bits and made vent holes in the back for the gauges to read properly and I also set a penny into it to show the year that it was made…check it out if you have time on my site here. I finished Dads with Waterlox original : )
