DIY Home Decor: Compass Coffee Table



You won’t normally need a compass in your living room. So, what could you possibly do with a few hundred? Turn them into an incredible coffee table of course! Just watch the video above see the neat effects of such a simple, yet fun project.

The compass table project is just elementary physics in action, but it’s still fascinating to stare at.  So, you place the 500 compasses arranged in a circular pattern and encased with a glass top to form an unusual table. Coasters embedded with small magnets are made to match the table.  Moving your coaster around creates a neat visual effect on the compass needles.

The table itself can be personalized to match the décor. The project starts off with IKEA prefab legs and a glass top. Take your pick of furniture.
