Step 1: Cutting
Cut the lightweight board to fit your magnets with a couple inches to spare on each side. One board for each magnet.
Step 2: Drilling
Drill two holes (about 1/2 an inch from the side) in each board that are the same size and the bolt can fit through.
Step 3: Hammering
Hammer the bolts through the hole so they are sticking out on one side.
Step 4: Gluing
Glue the magnets in the center of both boards so that the magnets are not attracted to each other, but pushing away from each other and wait for the glue to dry.
Step 5: Finishing Touches
Glue 4 nuts on the bottom of the board so that the bottom bard is level and then put the board without the bolts in it on the bolts.
