Grab your nuts, and build things..
Depending on the strength of your magnets, you can make pretty tall structures.
Its a pretty simple concept with many different applications.

Don't hot-glue gun yer magnets, mateys! It gonna weaken the magnet. I suggest you use wood glue.

I love to make these. It's an addictive time-waster and those are the best kind. I just need a magnet, I have a bunch of nuts and washers and screws.

Thats really cool and it ends up looking like something you'd spend a lot of money on at a shop. Really creative.
Nice job. I plan on making one of these with neodymium magnets, to make larger sculptures.

The end result is maddeningly addicting.
