i made this today for the scrap contest. i have a union brother that dropped/destroyed his favorite level friday. the bubbles were still good, so i took them and promised him a new level for monday. i’m interested to see his reaction. he likes to make fun of my “wierd wood obsession” (i check out all the pallets on the job). the wood is a scrap piece of walnut and some maple burl veneer that i had left over from the dropfront desk i made. the bottom is a piece of polished aluminum with 4 neodymium magnets embedded in it.

coastie – the 2 bubbles are 90 degrees to each other. one measures level, the other measures plumb.

Your brother will have a nice decoration on his mantle and he will always know if his house is on the level or not. You get a #1 vote from me in the scrap contest.
