Magnet Support Frame Construction

1. Cut a 9 13/32" long piece from the 1 × 2 white pine board. Miter cut both ends to a 45° angle. This piece will form the top rail of the magnet support frame.

2. Drill a hole through the center of the top support rail to accept the 5/8" diameter hex bolt. In order to provide enough room for two hex nuts, a Forstner bit was used to remove some excess wood.

The edges of the top support rail have been miter cut and a hole has been drilled to accept a 5/8

3. Cut two 17 1/2" long sections from the 1 × 2 white pine board. Miter cut one edge of each piece to a 45° angle. These two pieces will form the side rails of the magnet support frame.

4. Join the top and side rails together to form a U-shaped object. Use wood glue and finishing nails to secure the joints.

Seen prior to joining, the top and side rails form the magnet support frame.

5. Wow, that was easy. The magnet support frame is complete.
