I used wood glue to attach a few small pieces of scrap to the wooden panels I added. I then drilled holes and epoxied in some rare earth magnets:



On the door panel I drilled holes and epoxied in opposing magnets:



When you close the panel in place the magnets on the doors line up with the magnets in the stand:



In order to know where to drill holes on the door I first installed the magnets on the side panels, then put a little ball of painters tape on the magnet. Then I shmooshed the door on. The painters tape stuck to the door panel in the spot I needed to drill to get the magnets to line up. Theres a few different ways to do this including using a dab of paint etc.

This is great! Thanks! I really appreciate it!
