Roycroft Tall Magazine Stand
Issue: Issue 322
Posted Date: 3/19/2013
This reproduction peace of Roycroft furniture is made from 25 board feet of solid oak stock and features through tenons and locking keys. This means no glue or nails are required to assemble this stand and it can be taken apart by simply knocking out the locking keys.
It is 12 and a half inches wide at the top and 18 inches wide at the bottom and stands 60 inches high. The drawer at the top of the stand has the sides at 22 degrees and half blind dovetails at the front and through dovetails at the back of the drawer. The inside of the drawer is made of maple.
It is finished with a cheery stain which was hand rubbed in and then sanded off so that it would highlight the grain of the oak, then three coats of clear gloss varathane finish was applied to seal in the natural beauty of the wood.
