Limbert No. 346 Magazine stand

Attractive and functional in its own right, the No. 346 Magazine Stand also provides a good introduction to working with the trapezoidal forms of Limbert’s more sophisticated pieces.

The magazine stand is one of the signature pieces of the American Arts and Crafts movement, and Charles Limbert’s No. 346 is an especially distinctive take on the form. Two details mark the No. 346 as a Limbert design—the cutouts on the sides and the trapezoidal base. In the spirit of “I Can Do That” projects, I’ve modified Limbert’s design in two ways:

  1. Shortened the depth to use 1 x 12 dimensional stock
  2. Used pocket hole screws to join the shelves and kick to the sides.

These changes simplify construction and take advantage of wide dimensional lumber to avoid glue ups.

In later posts, I’ll step through construction and finishing, but you can get a head start by downloading the shop drawings and part list here.
