Free Magazine Holders / Porte-revues gratuits

Voici une partie de ma collection de magazines (revues) sur le travail du bois (pensez 40 années).

Here is part of my woodworking magazine collection (think 40 years).

Avez-vous remarqué que j’utilise des boîtes de carton de céréales à déjeuner pour organiser ma collection ?

Did you notice that I’m using breakfast cereal cardboard boxes as holders to organize my collection ?

Compte tenu que j’en possède beaucoup, c’est toute un économie par rapport à l’achat de ceux du commerce (chose du passé).

Since I own a lot of them, this is quite a saving compared to store bought ones (something from the past).

    super, mais comment les couper proprement ?

      Je trace une ligne au marqueur tout autre de la boîte, avec une règle, et je découpe aux ciseaux, avec soin.

    Hi, this article brought back memories and discussion with my wife of many craft projects in elementary school. At least two years, grades 2 and 4? we made magazine holders. These were done after Christmas and we were asked to salvage Christmas wrapping paper from presents to glue to the outside of the “Tide” soap boxes (we we’re big on cereal at our place). They were also sturdier. They were used for many years. Also, in grade one, we made Santa faces from the lids (with the tabs) from milk bottles.

      This is great memories. Thanks for sharing.
      I agree with the fact that Tide boxes were sturdier. I believe today’s Tide is sold in plastic only. I wonder if 50 years from now plastic will bring such memories.

    Serge, your magazines, like everything in your shop, it much better organized than mine. I have kept my old magazines piled on a shelf and wondered what I was going to do with them all.

    I am now down to one subscription but I’m finding that I miss having more to read than just one. Last week I got the idea to start looking at some of my old ones and discovered one advantage to getting old and forgetful. I’m now re-reading old articles that I forgot about. The first 2 Shop Notes I looked at that are about 8 years old both had a tip of yours published in them. Before I found you on this site I used to always look for your tips in the magazines because they were always the best. I think I have a few years of good reading ahead of me now 🙂
    Cheers Mark

      Hi Mark, It’s been a long time since your last comment.
      Having so many magazines no doubt they have to be organized. And when stuff is free I’m more tempted to be and stay organized.
      As you, I come back regularly with old magazines to find something “new”, reason why I won’t throw away any magazine.
      By the way, my first tip published was in deed in ShopNotes back in 2003. Good memories !
      Read your old magazines and don’t forget to read my posts ! 🙂

    Another solution is to cut down wine kit boxes… small ones are preferable. Those boxes are made of very strong cardboard and solidly glued together… and they are generally available free of charge from U-brew wine stores.

    Mais pas facile de les découper avec une paire de ciseaux… La meilleure solution est de se servir d’un couteau à lame rétractable, guidé bien sûr par une règle métallique. Et un des grands avantages de cette solution, c’est qu’une seule de ces boîtes peut facilement loger une bonne vingtaine de numéros…
