This is the Griffiths Patent Meteor Discourager & Weather Clemency Provoker, a device created for Hendricks Gin at the same time as The Harris-Griffiths Dendro-Optical Interpretation Engine. I'll admit, the design was mostly inspired by the fact that I had found an old article about how to work out the segments of a gramophone horn and I really, really wanted to have a go at one, but I think that is as good a start to any project as you can get! I had also just got hold of an old combination plane, which I used to cut the recesses in the legs for the panelling to slot into. It is, on the whole, an excellent example of me making things purely to test a process out.
