Make Your Own Magnetic Sculpture





Introduction: Make Your Own Magnetic Sculpture

How to make an cheap desktop toy that will amuse for hours!

Step 1: Parts

I'm almost positive everyone has the supplies to build this around their house.

- Project Box (mine was circular)
- A Few Magnets
- Some Nuts


Step 2: Construction

Well, Its pretty simple.
Grab your magnets, and start up your hot-glue gun.
Apply some glue to your magnets and stick them to the inside of your project box.

Step 3: Sculpt!

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.

    My nuts aren't magnetic... Bad bun hehe... So I don't have a project box.

    LOL!!.Please dont say that it hurts already...

    I gotta do this so badly! I just bought super power neodymin(?) magnets. They pinched me.

    Haha, i like it! Step three is funny ;D "Grab your nuts, and build things.." and can be taken the wrong way :P

    is that why mine wont stick to the board? i use ho glue, so it might be a permant scukpture, and now i am in pain a lot. You can use aloe for burns, right? jk xD

    That's cool! I hope I'll find some magnets to do this...

    I see a certain robot in the background.
