I needed a couple more magnets on my shop cabinet and I had this scrap mesquite from another job I’m working on, so I turned it into two barrel magnets. I used 3/4” rare earth magnets in the bottoms and 44 Mag casings in the tops. I added some shots of the mandrel I use to turn them. It has a #8 wood screw sticking out of it that the blank gets screwed onto for turning. I use a tail stock center for all the heavy cutting because without it, it would rip that little screw right out of the piece .
They are finished with clear lacquer.
