Magazine CabinetStrong joints ensure that this wall-mounted cabinet can handle a quarter century of Fine Woodworking magazines
The wall cabinet that Chris Gochnour designed holds 100 lb. of magazines, yet doesn’t take up much space. He used through dovetails and wedged mortise-and-tenon joints, the construction of which he details in this article, which includes project plans. Grooves hold the back and shelf, and he chose traditional frame-and-panel doors with handmade pulls. The cabinet hangs on a French cleat, which is strong enough tos carry the load of 25 years of Fine Woodworking magazines. Gochnour also includes information on how to glue up the cabinet, which he does in two steps, and on his choices of finish. Two exploded drawings are included, along with pictures of how to cut wedged mortise and tenons.
