I found this magnifying glass kit at woodcraft. They’re incredibly easy to make, and they make awesome gifts. I made this magnifying glass for my kids. We’ll definitely have some fun playing with it. It would also make a great gift for someone special. I’ll include links at the bottom of this post where you can pick one up. I chose to use an acrylic blank for the handle. I think this green looks beautiful and it turned out great. For the finishing I used a micro mesh sanding kit. You can apply a polish if you like, but this one turned out great without it. This magnifying glass should last for years.
If you make one of these be sure to post a picture of it over on the WoodLogger Facebook Page. I’d love to see how yours turns out. (pun intended)
