drill the medium screw into the small piece of wood, about 2 CM (0.8") from edge so only 2.5 (1") CM is showing.
drill the small screw about 2 CM (0.8") away from the first screw so only 1 CM (0.4") is showing.
hold this piece (screw faced down), try opening a bottle and correct screws location and depth if necessary.

connect the small wood to the large at a 90 degree angle using the two long screws.
glue the magnet to the long wood in the middle of where the box will go.
attach the box to the magnet.
secure the whole thing to something stable (i used duct tape and some shelves) and test it out before the final positioning.
attach your rig to the wall using a couple of screws/some glue or attach to your fridge if you have a really strong magnet
