Thread: Magnetic locking mechanisms

    Magnetic locking mechanisms

    Hi Guys. I'm looking for ideas for using magnets to secure lids on small boxes. I'm making Magic card deck boxes for 60 and 100 card decks and would like to come up with some unique and interesting ways to secure the lids. I have some ideas but I know with the wealth of ingenuity and talent here that there may be some great ideas that I would never think of.
    Thanks for any considerations.

    Countersink the magnet in the wood and hot glue it in place then veneer over top. Neodymium magnets (rare earth) are the strongest and what I would suggest to use.
