Finished what amounts to a plinth. The intent is to give the impression that the dial is simply rising from the earth. Lots of musty Moment of Inertia calculations to get an approximation for the size of the base. Feel happy with how it turned out. It's still a little wobbly but the issue is that the connection between the horizontal and vertical plates is a bit loose and that will be solved when the rivets are finally placed.
