magazine holder free plans: how to make a
Magazine Holder
Basic Description This holder will organize your magazines in a simple and elegant way. A hanging pouch neatly holds your reading material so that it is off the table, but always within easy reach. The fabric is easily removable for cleaning and the whole project goes together rather quickly. You can customize the look to compliment your decor or add extra tiers for increased capacity.

step:             5          

Now you need to sand. While you are on the lower grits, we suggest that you round over every single edge in the project: the cutouts that will receive the back panel, the rear side of the side panels, even the corners of the grooves that accept the dowels. This rounding over gives a handmade touch to the piece. We sanded using the following sandpaper grits: 100, 120, 150, 180, 240, 320, 400.
assembly detail
Once the sanding is complete, you are ready for assembly. Begin the assembly by predrilling some holes for screws through the back panel and into the side panels. We like to make the ends of the back panel to stick out just a bit so that it is proud. An 1/8" or 1/4" (3 - 6mm) satisfies us. We used two screws on each side. You will need to creatively clamp the pieces in a vice but you should be able to figure it out. Now you can glue up the back panel into the side panels. and immediately drive the screws. These redundant fastening methods will ensure that your magazine holder will have a long life even if it is handled roughly. The screws prevent the need to clamp the project together during drying.
