HOW TO – Make a Cable and magnet bulletin board

Noahw writes –

“Here is a way to make a place to hang papers, pictures and other random stuff using just some steel cable, a few magnets and some basic hardware. This project takes about 20 minutes to put together and you can pick up most of what you need at the local hardware store. While the project doesnt require much building experience, you will need a cable cutter, needle nose pliers and a drill to put this thing together.

When your done you’ll have a lightweight, semi-portable, semi-hip way to hang up all the extra papers lying around – or bacon adhesive bandages as the case may be.

This project is based upon something I saw in a museum gift shop which closely resembled this. But why pay money for what you can build yourself and customize to you own needs?”Link.

    I love the idea, but instead of cable clamps, I’d suggest using cable crimp for a cleaner look. With small cable like that you don’t really need a crimping tool, a vice grip works fine.

    For those who don’t know, thats what a crimp looks like:

    You will usually find them where they sell steel cable in the hardware store.
