Easy project to do with discarded wood and a common compass. In this case I used a bit of chinaberry wood (Melia azedarach) and HDF base board 1/4’’ (hardboard). Once glued, I covered the compass with masking tape and gave termination gloss lacquer spray.
Ideal for kids to play with style, or to decorate a desk.
Greetings.

Proyecto sencillo para hacer con descartes de madera y una brújula común. En este caso usé un poco de paraíso (Melia azedarach) y de base tablero HDF de 3mm (chapadur). Una vez encolado, tapé la brújula con cinta de enmascarar y le di la terminación de laca brillante en spray.
Ideal para que los chicos jueguen con estilo, o para decorar un escritorio.
Saludos.

Nice project!

I really like the classic look of the compass in wood.

Thanks Lew. Is a cheap compass, but do your job.
Gracias Gerardo. Se puede vender en una feria, o quedar bien con un regalo, es un objeto llamativo y misterioso.

Looks great! Simple and very stylish. Will definitely borrow your idea if that’s okay. :)
