Due to a past… shall we say, “extreme like” of Penguin Caffeinated Mints, I have more or less a bazillion empty metal tins, which I figured would make good project boxes for little ideas.
On the way to work I had an idea:
Take a tin, glue a strong magnet to the inside of the cover. Close the tin. Grab a handful of small steel hex nuts, and voilà – a magnetic stacking executive desk toy (fun for kids, too!
The tin could also be a storage box for the hex nuts if there weren’t too many.
