Faceplate for Screws

Stable, well-adherent covering caps hide counter-sunk screws

The problem: How do I make a simple, strong-holding and nice-looking faceplate for inset screws in a wooden frame?
The do-it-yourself shop does sell such covers but the shaft is often too long and too narrow for a good hold.
My solution: Get me some super magnets!
With a knife, carefully trim 2mm off the end of the shaft. The hollow shaft is now the perfect size for round magnets (here: R-06-02-02-G) .
The faceplate now holds to the screw by itself!
