My mother-in-law asked me to do something with her old weather station. I hope she likes what I did with it. I built a new frame for it and used only the gauges from the original. It’s made from solid oak and sprayed with clear lacquer. The key to this project was precise drilling of all the dowel holes so that the gaps around the frame would be evenly spaced.
