Title says it all.. After seeing Mark Spagnuolo’s (version of Glenn Huey’s) magazine rack, I enjoyed it so much that I decided to rip off his design.

Soft Maple, some figured walnut and zinc plated steel rods (couldn’t find stainless steel). Finish was natural flavored watco danish oil. Joinery was via pocket screws, took about an afternoon to mill and put together. The project was suprisingly fun, probably due to the fact that I was able to assemble it in less than a day and (other than the steel rods) was made with leftover material and finish.

My favorite part of any project is completing it and seeing the end result (not sure what that says about me), but there’s something particularly satisfying about building a project out of leftover material.

It looks good. I like these two woods together. They compliment each other very well.

Nice. Stainless steel tubing can be found in 7/8” & 1” at your local West Marine.
