get the wood base made first – - – - then, we can discuss the mounting
methods . . . place the yellow plate and the prop on a cup or bowl, and balance the prop.
that will give you an idea of how thick you want the wood for a decent presentation.
the base of the cone will come within maybe 1/8 – 1/4” from touching the wood.
the base of the wood will flare out from there maybe 4-6”. (your choice).
tackle one obstacle at a time to keep it all simple. but basically, all the bolt heads
will be recessed to keep the assembly tight to the wall. the prop bolts must be epoxied
so they won’t turn loose. (I don’t want to confuse you with T-Nuts just yet).
you could glue a piece of felt to the back of the wood so it won’t “stick”
over the years and make a mess when and if it is ever removed.
looking forward to seeing your project hanging on your wall !!!
