Not fine woodworking but very practical. Any other woodworking magazine hoarders out there?
3/4” plywood with a 1/4” laun backer – dado shelf joinery, wood screws and about 3 hours of cutting and assembly. Also building magazine boxes mostly out of free scrap wood from a building site plus a couple sheets of 1/4” luan. Works out to a penny or two over a $1 a box (plus my time of course). I’ll add another pic when I get it all put together and in place.
Two days later – posted pic of shelves and library in place. Mags out of storage boxes and accessible. Only two or three magazine boxes not fully occupied. Goodness, I realized that I still have woodworking magazines from over thirty years ago in late High School.
Had to adapt some of the boxes to accommodate mags laying down. Still need to pull the annual indexes out and put in a binder. Checked out the price of card holder pulls and have decided to figure out a homemade solution to that issue, too.
Wish I had enough of the pseudo mahogany ply for them all from a kitchen cabinet remodel dumpster dive that I used on those top boxes.
