I like the look of Make magazine (http://makezine.com/) on my bookshelves but I wanted something to store them in that was similar to the holders I use for other magazines. Make's (and Craft's) unique form factor require a custom solution.

The images show the Make Magazine logo and cover art for each year. I'm assuming that I can't include the cover images in the files here but I downloaded them from Make's own website if you want to make them exactly like mine (http://makezine.com/covers/)

Each file is designed for a loose fit for gluing and has been sized to contain four issues (one year).


I whipped these up in Corel Draw X4 and then cut them on the Epilog Helix 45w lazzzzor at TechShop RDU. I used 1/4" Baltic Birch plywood and then sanded the whole shebang to 400 grit. I finished the pieces with General Finishes Seal-a-Cell.

The raster and vector settings are in the files.

I added DWG and SVG files but I have not cut from these. No promises...

Rippa! Thanks heaps!

I'll let you know how I fare. 8-)

Sure, no problem. I added SVG and DWG files but I haven't tested those files. Buyer beware on those...

Great work!!!!

Any chance of DXF or DWG versions of your CDR files.... I don't have a suitable converter, and my laser cutting vendor can't use CDR files..... :(


Thought of selling these? I wouldn't mind buying a set.

It just occurred to me that I should etch the QR code into these so that people can find their way back here if they find these in meatspace.
