A few weeks ago Mom found this neat magnifying glass at a thrift store. I (Steph) really like the look of it and have been trying to find a way to use it at my house. I thought the best way to display it was to make a wooden stand. I got the idea one night and the next morning decided to see what I could come up with!
We have a woodworker friend that gave us some of his scrap wood a few years ago. I found some really pretty pieces for this project. They are Honduras Mahongany and Purpleheart. Tip- check Craigslist for wood scraps.
To cut the hanger, I used a 5/8” spade bit to cut two holes in the wood, then I used a hand saw to cut the remainder of wood out.
We used a Dremel to sand this smooth.
I’m really happy with how this project turned out. It’s always fun to use scrap wood to make something new and unexpected. As a Lego lover, I thought the perfect object to magnify on the stand, would be our two minifigures.
