Just got done with a 3-day build. This is my own design for a dob base for my practically-new Zhumell Z12 bought here on Astromart. It's sitting on a dedicated EQ platform (Atomic EQ Platforms, sadly out of business now).

I still have to put on 4 coats of heavy duty Spar polyurethane and then the Ebony Star bearing ring from ScopeStuff.
