I’m an avowed magazine junkie. Despite tons of great digital inspiration, there’s nothing better for me than lying on the sofa and leafing through home and design magazines. But where can all my favourite magazines be found? In a Caddy magazine, of course. Best of all, I can carry my beloved magazines from the living room up to the office, down to the bedroom and back to the living room. Of course, such a helper should also fit perfectly with the rest of the decoration. So I sawed some plywood panels, screwed them together, sanded them, painted them to match and spiced them up with some brass. Finished is the perfect magazine Caddy.
- Template for wood cutting
- 1 plywood board 25cm x 30cm, 12mm thick
- 1 plywood panel 42cm x 32cm, 7mm thick
- brass tube 28cm long, 8mm diameter
- 2 brass balls, 12mm diameter
- wood glue
- 6 wood screws, 20mm long
- 8mm wood drill
- Paint and Brush
- Drilling machine and cutting tool (of course you can also have the wood cut to size at a DIY store)
AND THAT’S IT.
- Enlarge template for wood cutting to 200% and print it out. Transfer the template to the 42cm x 32cm plywood board and cut the wood to size and drill the holes for the brass tube in both side walls. Sand edges and wooden surfaces.
- Coat the inner edge of the side walls with wood glue.
- Press the side walls against the longer side of the base plate and fasten each with 3 wood screws. Remove excess wood glue.
- Paint the caddy with paint according to your mood.
- Glue the brass ball to one side of the brass tube with superglue. Push the brass tube through the holes in the side walls and glue the second brass ball to the opposite end of the tube.
Now I wish you a lot of fun with the replica and it would interest me totally how you read the magazines stands
