As the others have said, a forstner bit would work fine. If the magnets you’re using are nickel coated (shiny silver) be sure to scuff up the back and sides before epoxying them in the holes. This helps the adhesive have some tooth to grab on to. I had good luck with any hardware store 5 min epoxy.
