Maple and Walnut Acorn Needle Minder


Dave has created the beautiful acorn of this needle minder from maple. He has adorned the acorn using pyrography, or burn etching. Hidden inside the acorn is a rare earth magnet which will "mind" your pins and needles.

Rare-earth magnets are strong, permanent magnets made from alloys of rare earth elements. Rare-earth magnets are substantially stronger than ferrite or alnico magnets, so you'll need to keep this away from your credit cards or pacemaker.

The 2 3/4 inch base was crafted from walnut, and cork dots on the back protect your furniture from scratches.
