This magazine rack was constructed in 1974 to match my end tables constructed at the same time of Solid Mahogany. The Mahogany was $300 a 1000 at the time. I built a series of Mahogany projects over the few years and the price double for each project. The finish was 3 coats of shellac and 3 coats of varnish after a coat of light oak wood stain to reduce some of the red. The magazine rack is still in use today, 39 years later.
