Various thoughts and activities related to my amateur astronomy interests including telescope making and observing. Plus other stuff that may be on my mind.

Rocker Box just about done
Just about done with the rocker box. I liked the tapered sides with the routed out circles. Makes it look nice. Instead of painting the rocker box, I have decided to Polyurethane it for a natural look. The bearings will also have a natural look. The mirror box will have a black textured paint and secondary ring will be flat black. I used screws and glue for all joints. Still wondering about whether I will glue the bearings on or bolt them. And if I bolt them, should I use threaded inserts or not.
