Hey guys...I built a great 2x12 cabinet with a nice lid/cover. I used industrial stregth velcro, buyt it just isnt quite strong enough to hold the cover on. I think magnets are the way to go...have you had experience using rare earth magnets and where can I find the kind that can be screwed into the wood? Again, I dont want to have to do any gluing, I want the kind with the counter sunk cups, but I'm having a challenge finding exactly what I'm looking for...Thanks in advance

I just used rare earth disc magnets glued into the wood. They've last for quite a while with no problems.

Me too... just drilled a hole in the wood and used epoxy to put them in. Works fine... I haven't seen any specially shaped ones like you are mentioning... I imagine they'd be a lot more expensive.
