Floating Hot Air Balloon

I made a hot air balloon that floats!

The balloon is a cottonwood hollowform, colored with dyes.  The basket is black palm wood.  The base is also colored cottonwood.

The base supports a vertical pole, and the balloon has a tube running through its middle. The balloon just slides onto the pole.

I put strong magnets in the basket and the base, and that’s what makes it float.
