Default ?? about finishing

I am making this weather station, and am wondering about the base I was planning on mounting it to.
The triangle thingies are from a Steve Good art pattern.
It is made from poplar and the base is a piece of Russian olive that is not perfectly flat.
Sometimes I like the rustic base and other times I think I should try something else..

Advice needed.

Well, at first blush, the weather station doesn't really fit the rustic look, so the live edge base almost seems out of place, at least to my eye. If it were me, I'd probably try to come up with a design for the base that has a more modern look that would complement the "triangle thingies" and save the Russian elm for another project.

Just my $.02, and worth what you paid for it.
