Build a Magazine Rack from Shelving Brackets

by on Jul 5, 2011

Confession: when I was in college, I’d watch This Old House every Saturday morning.  Granted, it was on during my shift at the broadcasting station, but I made it a point to shirk all my other duties so I could take notes during the episodes. (It was college, taking notes was like breathing back then.). They always had something useful for my DIY-self.  Take, for example, this bracket-turned-magazine rack project: I know lots of us are bummed out at the magazine organizers at our local office supply stores… so why not make something unique and fun to keep all our DIY-zines in place?  Our favorites from TOH give step-by-step instructions on how to replicate this project.

They get all fancy-schmancy with decorative trim and mitered corners, but this can be as simple as you want it to be.

  1. I like the fancy corners, it gives it some personality. As you say I’d probably make it a lot simpler, my woodwork isn’t exactly professional lol!
