You wonâ€™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. Â 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. Â Moving your coaster around creates a neat visual effect on the compass needles.
The table itself can be personalized to match the dÃ©cor. The project starts off with IKEA prefab legs and a glass top. Take your pick of furniture.
