Most of us who have a wood shop, besides having a place for our tools to call home, our reference books and magazines also need home, In my case I had the perfect spot to stack them but I was constantly going through my stack to find the one I wanted. Well after awhile even for my disorganized self this was Nucking Futs. I had some left over mitered pieces from one project or another, the base was part of another project that I never got around to finishing, so I took the mitered pieces over to my chop saw and trimmed them down, then off to the bandsaw and round them over. (I just got the band saw so I have to abuse her errr i mean put her to use) little bit of wood glue, and let it set for an hour. (had to sweep up my floor) then alternating my pocket screws and boom my magazine.reference rack is born. Then to finish her off, I used MinWax Red Sedona, and 3 coats of Poly Urethane.

The copyright overlay is so distracting and obnoxious that I can’t make heads or tails of the project.

Ken, this site is all about inspiration and sharing. If you’re concerned about a fellow woodworker copying your idea, simply in the description, ask that they ask your permission first. You are, as ArtMann said, literally covering up everything I assume you want us to see. You might want to read this:

Which deals with copyrights both legal and otherwise.
