Magazine Storage

By: Erich Lage
This is a great way to keep your most recent copies of Woodsmith close at hand in the shop.

03 10 01 In the past, I’ve stored all of my magazines and catalogs in a filing cabinet. Over the years, the cabinet became completely full. So I came up with a storage solution that uses the wire ribbing from inexpensive file folders (photo below) and a simple wall-mounted rack. This allows me to store magazines right in the shop where they’re close at hand. 03 10 03 The ribs can be cut free from the folders with a utility knife. 03 10 05 To build the wall rack, I started by making two ladder-like assemblies with dowels spaced 2" apart. The ladders are then attached to the edge of the back using a tongue and groove joint. The file folders are readily available for less than 20 cents a piece. It’s a cheap solution to store all of your magazines.
