I found this design on someone’s Pinterest page, and it was the perfect time waster to build over the three day weekend. I intentionally did everything the hard way just to make my brain work (wedged legs, tilted wings, resawed the wood from scraps) and it did.

I did manage to use my new-but-unused Veritas small router attachment for a Dremel tool. That thing, for the price, is awesome, if you do much inlay work. I haven’t used the Micro-Router, which is a cool $400+. but for my purposes, it worked great. Much better than the plastic toy Dremel makes, which in all fairness DOES work. But is super-hard to micro-adjust.

The banding is from my Buffard Freres stash. I thought “what the hey”. It’s not like I want that stuff lining my coffin.

Building a magazine rack in this day and age seems a bit like an anachronistic throwback. But now I have someplace to put my Model Railroaders so my wife won’t throw them away. Stay tuned!

For the detail person—Minwax Tung Oil finish, some leftover scraps of Khaya/African Mahogany from my Dead Man’s Mahogany stash.

I love the contrast of the banding with the Mahogany.

Have your say...
