Tiny magnets were ordered online to go on the needle and coasters.
Four were glued in a row to the point of the needle. Tape ensured they wouldn’t stick together.
Danish oil was used to add a nice finish to the piece.
Coasters were made from solid pieces of scrap wood. A hole was drilled through the middle and then a magnet was placed inside. These coasters would be used to pull the compass needle.
Felt was used to make sure the coasters didn’t scratch the glass.
The glass was fitted from a glaziers, they did a good job!
Here is the finished product in all its glory!
Doesn’t it look great?
What a talent ‘walterrobot’ has! It was also noted that the table was later intended to be a gift for their grandmother. If it went ahead we’re sure she was absolutely thrilled with it! We would be interested to know what mark this awesome table got? Hopefully a high one as that’s what it deserves.
