Behold my friends! The power of magic. Or is it science? Yes… science is the key.

I’m no fan of tossing scraps, so I scrounged togethers some pieces of maple, lacewood, walnut and mahogany for this latest project.

But how does it work?

At first, I thought you gave it Viagra…

After the 2nd video, it hit me!

You have some embedded Rare Earth Magnets working for you… YES?! :)

COOL

Joe… Good first guess but not quite. Your second guess is a little better. I recycled some old hard drive magnets by embedding them into the wood. It’s a fun desk toy!
