Mobile Magazine Rack
Identical assemblies in this project make it a quick build, but the unique joinery will keep you challenged to the finish.
This magazine rack is packed with techniques. It starts with two frame and panel ends that hold a bottom tray and two slanted sides. The handle cutouts on the end frames follow the curves of the upper rails. And casters on the bottom let you move it around to keep your reading material within arms reach anywhere in the room. Building the slatted sides and bottom is made easy with a simple technique that doesn’t require making any mortises. And by using a piano hinge to join the sides, there’s no tricky alignment problems during assembly. Finally, you’ll find a template for cutting the top rail for the end panels so you won’t have to fuss with laying out the curves. With all this help, you’ll have the rack finished in no time.

Similar Woodsmith Plans
The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
All of the information that you need to build our plans can be found in the standard plan. However, if you want even more granular detail to make your job easier, you should consider our premium plans. These come with additional shop diagrams that we drew when creating the prototypes. Shop drawings are not available for every plan.
