question-tm.jpgBrad asks: “Where/how do you store various shop-related publications that you might want to keep for future reference — specifically magazines?  I’ve recently acquired some of my grandfather’s old woodworking tools and have found myself purchasing various magazines with tips and potential projects in them.  It’d like to keep them around and organized in some manner.”

I know from the emails I receive how organized some of you Toolmongers are (and aren’t).  What say you?

  1. You could get some cardboard or plastic magazine storage boxes from Office[Max|Depot], or build your own out of walnut like David Marks on the DIY Woodworks show: http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/shows_wwk/episode/0,2046,DIY_14350_26945,00.html

    Those are sharp. Thanks for the link.

    I use the cardboard ones – check with your library, often they get rid of worn ones, I scored a bunch a while back at our local library sale.

    I have almost a complete set of Lapidary Journal, Home Shop Machinist, Machinist’s Workshop and sundry other mags all stored happily in the cheap cardboard magazine boxes.

    I use those magazine boxes for parts bins.

  5. Andrew says:

    I use regular 3-ring binders and “magazine holders”, which are specially-punched plastic strips that fit in 3-ring binders.


    A 3″ binder is enough to handle a year’s worth of most 100-page magazines.
