Maybe you’re like me and you have no sense of direction unless it’s by geographical landmarks. I’m not so far gone that I have to join Monty Python’s “Race For People With No Sense of Direction” —
But, I can be pretty bad. That’s why a truly good friend should make me this awesome compass table. The maker of this beautiful item made it for friends as a wedding present. He also put some magnets in coasters to get a super cool effect, ’cause you know, compasses they like magnets.
Here’s the step by step —
First, we start with a solid table found at the thrift store that just needs a little love —
Then we attach a router to center using some scrap wood —
Next, we start the test circle —
Add some compasses to see if we are achieving the right depth —
Get it all smooth and just right. Add a little poly —
By the end you’ll have something pretty unique and awesome —
See the full build here and watch the video below to experience the cool magnetic coasters having their way with the compass table. Now, go! Get out of here. Get to building something awesome!
