Making a Magazine Rack

I made this Magazine Rack out of wood and clear acrylic.  This is an easy woodworking project that would make a great gift for any avid reader.  It only took a few hours and it's made completely from scrap materials I already had in the shop.

I enjoy going into the shop with just an idea for a project and making it up as I go.  If you've ever watched the American Pickers show, you've probably seen them talk about "Freestyling" where anything goes and you just wing it.  I did some freestyling to create this Magazine Rack out of leftover materials.  It's going to look great in my library!
