Thin metal strips for magnets
I'm working on a project where I need magnets hold two pieces of wood together. One piece will fit into the other via an angled dado and I want the magnets to reinforce the grip. My idea was to add some rare-earth magnets one board and a thin metal strip to the other (inside the angled dado). My question is, where can I find such strips? I'll need something that is about 1/2" wide x 20" long (and as thin as possible. Any thoughts?
Also, how would you adhere the metal to the wood? Any type of glue that works well for this?
Thanks in advance!
