    But I know what to do for the next one. Jim's comment about a double row is right on.
    Since the blades are not flat I need more strength and surface contact area.

    I think next I will try double rows and closer together. I will do a test piece before I make the whole thing.

    As for being a fridge magnet....
    .....nope.

    drill out the old magnets and use same or larger diameter in double thickness with thin round pieces from a nice burl to cover the magnets...

    Too late to do anything else with it.
    I poured gasoline on it,
    lit it on fire,
    called it names,
    and then urinated on the smoldering coals.
    I will never work with burl again!!!!!

    Not really.
    But.... I will start over with a new piece and try to do it right this time.
    I usually keep my failures around as a reminder.
