This was inspired by my son who asked for a magazine stand for his office. I had seen similar designs made of metal but never one quite like it in wood. The shelves are Birch plywood, the uprights and shelf supports are West Tennessee Walnut. I was able to cut the bottom center portion of each plywood shelf without damaging the top Birch veneer to create the angle of each shelf to keep magazines, etc. from slipping to the floor. I finished with Satin Oil Polyurethane only. The use of the two highly contrasting wood species accentuate the design. I also made one for my daughter’s office and mine too.

Nice idea Skylark! I particularly like not cutting the top veneer for a “formed” look.

Hey Tennessee, You should copyright that look and number and name that thing. The Mag-a-nater might be a good start. Very cool design you made. Thanks for your post, very inspiring.
