2¼ years

Wood finishing aside, finder cross-hair repair aside, the integrated altitude-azimuth base for the barn door tracker is done. From first thoughts to today, 2 years, 2 months, and 5 days. A long journey surprisingly but satisfying. I'm excited to try it. Overall I'm very pleased with the build. And it accomplishes something that I wanted, that it is a complete DIY solution, drive train, electronics, barn door wedge, and now alt-az base made of the same materials and accessible hardware, constructed with tools available at home.
