Hey Renaissance guy, nice boxes. Do you use two magnets per box, or one with metal. I would think that two would be hard to open. Thanks.

I use two 6mm magnets. They hold the top down tightly but not so tight as to be hard to open.

This is the one project from which I get the most. I use the curly maple framed box as my personal pill box. Twice a day, every day, I get to handle it, look at it and admire it. It helps make the pills go down more easily.

Like Rob said, very good idea. I feel bad about digging my pills out of the little plastic thingy now…... maybe I can chance that….. Thanks for the post.
