Almost there.

A happy star.

Gunnar is almost done. Here is a photo of how the mounting, fabricated of stainless steel by Nybro Rör och Mekaniska, is cut in to the wood. You can also see three of the five threaded rods holding the construction together.

Wood news

The two aluminiun stars are now welded together. I hope to be able to get them from the foundry next week.

Meanwhile Gunnar is making progress with the wood star.
Gunnar is using a pointing machine to transfer measurements from my 1:1 model to the wood.
