Introduction: Desk Magnifying Glass

Picture of Desk Magnifying Glass

So I bought spoon rest from the thrift store for $1. My wife looked at me with a puzzled look.

"What are you going to do with that?"
"I'm going to use it to make stuff bigger."
"Okay." Bless her, the poor dear is used to my crazy ideas, so nothing surprises her anymore...

An epoxy poured magnifying glass. I take a thrift store spoon rest and turn into something useful and interesting for you desk. If you have a couple hours to spare, you can do the same!

You're gonna need LOTS of glue... :)

Cool project, sorry the colored pencil thing didn't work out, but now I know I can make a magnifying lens from resin!

That colored pencil thing still keeps me up at night... My brain hasn't stopped working on it! :)
