That grain is just wild. Neat.
Where you able to get the right amount of magnetic catch? Most of mine are a bit too strong.

Thanks everyone for all the comments.
Steve, the magnets were from Home-depot (Super Magnets) you are right they are strong, but it opens quite easily.
You can,t pull them straight apart, but they slide apart nicely.
