I built this for my little boy a while back now. Hardly get time to build things at home.
That’s a great one I can relate to that project,I spend my life I king nerf guns up and the bullets from around the paddock and garden are there shadows behind the guns so you know there all in
His ever growing collection of nerf guns.
Made of 18mm MRMDF with some dowels and sprayed in PU paint.

I started with a slice of inch thick board and sawed it two along the grain and book mark the two halves. I then fitted the magnets to the two halves. I made the magnet holders out of brass (I have a small metal working lathe) and they have magnets glued into them, so sorry these are not available anywhere that I know of. Rediculously simple though. Just 12mm brass rod, 15mm long, with a 10mm counter bore to hold the magnet and a 4mm hole through for the locating rod, which is unsurprisingly 4mm brass rod . I glue the locating rod into one side and leave the hole in the other. The magnets are strong so I can treat the joined block as a single piece from there on, no other support is needed. In fact it was two years before my wife realised hers came apart .Nice finish and shape,Paul, a Forster bit might have worked and then cut them in half with a really fine Japanese saw. Just wondering did you buy those pins with the magnets as sets? I can think of a few uses for them. Ian
