On the back of the board mark with the pen the exact places where the magnets should be later.
The holes for the disc magnets are then drilled with a 25 mm Forstner drill. Make sure the holes are deep enough, but never too deep to keep the front of the board undamaged.
The magnets are then glued in place with the hot gun (or other strong glue). All magnets should only get adhesive on the sides and also from above.
Place disc magnets in the finished drill holes and glue firmly
The wood is sanded from all sides and at the edges. For your relief, you can also use a multi-sander.
The wood oil is applied with a brush and massaged into the wood with a coarse sponge. After 15 minutes the oil is removed from the wood with a cotton cloth.
You can also use wood varnish instead of oil
