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

:D

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.

    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.
