I am a self-confessed magazine junkie. Despite tons of great, digital inspiration, there is nothing better for me than lying on the sofa and leafing through living and design magazines. But where can all my favorite books fit? In a magazines caddy of course. Best of all, I can carry my beloved magazines from the living room up to the office, down to the bedroom and back to the living room. Of course, such a helper should also fit perfectly with the rest of the decoration. So I sawn some plywood boards, screwed, sanded, painted to suit and spruced up with some brass. Done is the perfect magazine caddy.

MATERIAL

  • Template for wood cutting
  • 1 plywood board 25cm x 30cm, 12mm thick
  • 1 plywood board 42cm x 32cm, 7mm thick
  • Brass pipe 28cm long, 8mm diameter
  • 2 brass balls, 12mm diameter
  • Superglue
  • Wood glue
  • 6 wood screws, 20mm long
  • Screwdriver
  • 8mm Wood drills
  • Paint and brush
  • Drilling machine and cutting tool (of course you can also have the wood cut in the hardware store)

AND HOW TO GO

  • Template for wood cutting to 200% enlarge and print. Transfer the template to the 42cm x 32cm plywood board and trim the wood and drill the holes for the brass pipe in both side walls. Sand edges and wooden surfaces.
  • Coat inner edge of side walls with wood glue.
  • Press side panels against the longer side of the base plate and fasten with 3 wood screws each. Remove excess wood glue.
  • Paint caddy with paint as you wish
  • Glue brass ball with superglue to one side of the brass pipe. Push the brass tube through the holes in the side walls and glue the second brass ball to the opposite end of the tube.

Now I wish a lot of fun rebuilding and I would be totally interested in how you read the magazine.
