After completing a recent project requiring rare-earth magnets, I tossed the remaining magnets in a drawer for storage. Big mistake. Later, I discovered them stubbornly stuck to each other and just about every metal object in the drawer.

To keep that from happening again, I built this simple holder. The pivoting hardboard lid keeps the magnets in place until I need one. Then, I simply insert the shank end of a drill bit through the bottom of the holder and easily pluck the magnet off the end.
