Thanks!
Your way is nice!
We made stools, lightings, etc using MDF. And we have a lot of scraps of MDF. So, I wanted to make something with the scraps of MDF.

Nice concept! Why did you make such a thick stack? It could be much simpler with just two pieces of plywood, hollowed out like the MDF in your thing, glued together with magnet and then cut to shape. That is only one glue joint to make instead of three.
We do have a lot of plywood on stock, but little veneer. Most people probably would not notice the nicer quality wood of the veneer anyway.
It might be good to mention/include a jig to position the wood after glueing in the magnets, you would not want to cut through a magnet do you?
