Magnets

Most people would have to agree that magnets are pretty cool. And most of us would have owned several while growing up. But now I seem to seldom see or use them.

But there has to be a way to include magnets into our turnings. This section will explore different ways that turners can envision using magnets.

 

Make Refrigerator MagnetsMake Refrigerator Magnets
By: John Wolf
In this short tutorial, John shows us how to use small pieces of beautiful wood to create something useful. Most of us have cut offs from cutting bowl blanks round or from end of pen blanks or other pieces of wood (or alternative materials) that we just don't want to discard. This is probably the best use of such small pieces.

John goes step-by-step in explaining how to make these refrigerator magnets. But be careful as they can be additive and before you know it, you whole shop will be clean!

In this photo tutorial, John shows us a clever way of taking advantage of all those pen blank left overs that we all have. He also shows how he makes a custom screw chuck just for this project. It's very useful here and I expect for other projects too!

The fridge magnets are a just little project and not only makes use of those pen blank scraps but allows us to use magnets in our turning, cool!
