    I’ve done a bit of a search here and Alan sent me a link showing me the magnetic closures for cases, but I can’t find where they are for sale. I do like the brass clasps too, but again, I’m having trouble sourcing them. Can anyone throw me a URL of where I might find either to buy?
    Cheers

    For a small box just drill a blind hole into the wood on each side and inset a rare earth magnet into the holes with a dab of glue. Make sure you pay attention to the direction of the poles and it holds just fine. I’ve bought several times from these folks:

    Kind of a goofy website, but they have good prices and the products have been accurately described. I’ve used these for latching:

    For cabinet latches of various kinds here is a site that aggregates links:
