Here’s another useful small project. I find that more and more, I need a magnifying glass to read small type and such. So I designed and built this holder to keep one handy beside my computer table; I have another in the my shop.
Made of 1/4” American Elm with rabbet joinery. Stained with MinWax Puritan Pine then several coats of General’s Arm-R-Seal wiped on. All of the staining was done before assembly and I also pre-finished all of the interior parts that would be difficult to do after assembly. Can’t see it in the picture, but there are pieces of leather on the interior bottom surfaces to protect the magnifier.
