Anyone know of a vid tutorial on ‘em?
My bride wants a bunch for use as Christmas gifts, so I need some help on speeding up the process.

The Feb. 2014 Woodturning Design has a great article on this. Also, YouTube video on turning a simple one: http://youtu.be/RlDcCgLJRXM.

Bill: Are you sure that you want to make refrigerator magnets? My local PBS station was offering refrigerator magnets as gifts during their fundraiser. They probably weren’t considering the fact that most of the people watching the program have stainless steel refrigerators where magnets won’t work. I do know, however, that you can buy steel plates that you can stick on SS refrigerators so magnets will work.
Crazy world. :)

John, you know how it works. She speaks. I listen. :)
Stainless or not, I’ve gotta make a bunch of these thingies, and was lookin’ for a somewhat simple method.

Is there any reason they have to be turned? Sounds like a pattern-routing job to me.
What are they supposed to look like? Maybe I can help with a pattern.
