ferrous nail heads might work, too. cuts the number of magnets in half, and no issues with polarity mismatch...

Nail heads would work too, for sure. But they'd still need to be cut so might as well stay with the rods which are, most importantly, the right diameter. :-)

Very nice mod Josh, I do love the idea of the flush floor. :ugeek:

Will you be magnetizing a CBS doorway wall, so it can mount the same way? I kind-of wish we had a centered doorway for this and other applications. Maybe a small double door not as wide as the large double we have now, but maybe between the single and double width doorways. A french door with window openings or something would be cool too.

I've been back for almost a week, but have been too busy to get to my "tree" ideas, Maybe in a week or two I'll get back to that thread with some ideas. My problem there is that I could see a whole KS done just for trees and that is uber-unlikely.

I bought a product called Darice Plastic Canvas, in black. I also cut a piece of clear plastic for the window glass from some kids toy packaging.

I can't help myself. look at the picture of the Darice Plastic Canvas with its original price label.

The label in French - says color "negro", which is Spanish.
The label in Spanish - says color "noir", which is French!

The joys of international labelling when the workers speak none of the langauges.

No new CBS Mods and I've had trouble getting pictures done of my modular tree system ideas, so it'll be a bit longer on those. I have sculpted some things for better representation of the tree idea, but it'll be a bit longer (month or two?).

BUT, I thought I would toss this 1/2 Tile Street Market out to view. I did it a few months ago from the mods in this thread. I didn't realize the sign said 'INN' at this point. Duh... ;)

Any new mods out there??? Add some of your ideas if you want to. :)
