Bearings done


I finished the bearings.  They are 21″ in diameter and 1″ thick.  On the 12.5″, I routed some holes to give it a nice look.  With these bearings, I decided to try something different.  The bearings are made from two 1/2″ pieces of baltic birch plywood.  I routed similar holes only one of pieces and left the other solid.  I think it looks nice.  I sanded them so that they are perfectly matched.  I plan to work on the secondary ring this week.

Also, I will not be painting these like I did on the 12.5″.  I plan to keep it natural by putting a layer of clear enamel over it.  I think it will look good.  The rest of the scope will be the same however.
