I built this magnetic fishing set to give to my youngest daughter. It is just pine lumber cut on the bandsaw and painted. I used a forstner bit to drill holes for the magnets. A little gorilla glue to hold the magnets in and it’s time to go fishing. Again, for the record, I am a terrible painter. The reel mechanism does work….but not very well.
