Turn Something Old Into Something New Again!

My mother-in-law asked me to update her old weather station.  I removed the gauges and used those, but scrapped the original frame.  I built a new frame out of oak.  The gauges are mounted in three square pieces of oak that are attached to the outer frame with small dowel rods.  The key to this project was careful measurement of the dowel hole locations, dowel length, and the open gaps around the three squares.  Look around your home for something that could use a little updating and go for it!
