A pleasure. My name’s Knurl.
I wanted to make a new layered box concept I’d been thinking about, but knew that the indexing between layers was going to be essential to success. I’d experimented with using brass pins as structural/indexing tools so I thought this would be a good time to put that technique to use.
- 1/8” solid non PG maple.
- Ten total layers tall, roughly 2” in diameter.
- Tiny magnets are 3mm cubes. ([source here](radarfn Magnetic Cube 216pcs 3mm… https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07B3T3SZZ?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share))
- Sanded to 600 grit, sealed with wipe-on satin polyurethane.
The top and bottom are both engraved, here’s the bottom.

The interior has a shelf for the magnets, the top is held in orientation to continue the spiral of the sides.

As a proof of concept it’s pretty successful. My next iteration would be at double the x and y size to make it a more useful piece, but for now I’m calling it a win.
