Wonderful combination of scraps and imagination here. I also like those lovely young ladies in the background.
Did you use supermagnets to get the top to balance, or is your woodwork that precise? Or did you take those
pictures with a camera that stopped the action? Thank you for sharing.

Bluepine,

Nothing of mine is so presice. It is done with magnets. It is sitting still in the picture.

I am baffled. I just sold a scrap wood project on ebay for $34.00. There might be something to this woodworking thing.
