Very unique and attractive design.

What kind of wood and finish did you use?

I’m going to guess “storage for your favorite woodworking magazines.” Very nice! What kind of wood is it?

The corpus is burnished pine. The racks are made from birch plywood. The front is birdseye maple veneer.The surface treatment is linseed-oil and silk varnish.

Lovely piece, Attila.

When I arrived in Australia, I managed a company that made these kinds of files from sheet metal. I quickly learned that there was a whole different set of filing devices in Australia than I had be familiar with in Canada or the USA. Subsequently, I learned that the whole rest of the world used similar filing products and that it was Canada and the USA that was out of step. It’s a matter pf perspective, I guess.

Nice work, Attila.

my daughter and I just walked through 3 stores trying to find the perfect storage system for her.. she couldn’t find one.. I said, “maybe a woodworker you know could make you something”.
And here it is.: pretty; functional; compact; organized…

now if only we could find a woodworker who could build it.

Don, I’m curious—how do we Canadians file vs “the other way” ?

Debbie, look up “Lever Arch File” on Google. This is the basis of filing in most other parts of the world.

Me I surface file. Everything on top of whatever is on the bottom.

Great job. I like the sequenced veneers. It should help you getting them all back in the correct order.

Very nice! I like how the grain on the front veneer matches.
