Woodturning Projects: Magnets

Most people would have to agree that magnets are pretty cool. And most of us would have owned several while growing up. But now I seem to seldom see or use them.

But there has to be a way to include magnets into our turnings. This section will explore different ways that turners can envision using magnets.

Fridge Magnets from Pen Blank Cutoffs

In this photo tutorial, John shows us a clever way of taking advantage of all those pen blank leftovers that we all have. He also shows how he makes a custom screw chuck just for this project. It’s very useful here and I expect for other projects too!

The fridge magnets are a just little project and not only make use of those pen blank scraps but allows us to use magnets in our turning, cool!
