I created this a few months ago, at TechShop San Jose (www.techshop.ws) to address limitations on Printer Stands I'd seen. Store-bought printer stands usually don't have enough storage for my liking...
It is 19" Wide, 15" Deep, and 6.75" high.
It will hold Standard and Legal-sized paper reams just fine.
The cuts are straightforward using a 60-Watt Epilog laser engraver. I'll provide the files and steps in cutting and building the printer stand from 1/4" and 1/8" MDF.
All files are Corel Draw Version15, which is the default save for their X5 version.
1/4" MDF (I cut at 9% speed and 90% power) for:
Top, Bottom, and Center shelves
1/8" MDF(I cut at 19% speed and 90% power) for:
2 Center vertical supports
Step 1: Cut the Top and Bottom Shelves
1/4" MDF is used for these.
Step 2: Cut the Center Shelf
I created an ellipse in Corel Draw, converted it to curves, then removed one-half of the ellipse. That's how the front of the shelf has the indents...
Again, this is cut out of 1/4" MDF
Step 3: Cut the Vertical Sides for the Printer Stand
You'll need to cut 2 sides.
Step 4: Cut the Vertical Back of the Stand...
Step 5: Cut the Vertical Center Support Pieces
These are the only pieces made of 1/8" MDF.
They are the exact same, but during the construction you'll see how they are used in a sneaky way to 'share' a mortise in the Center Shelf...
Step 6: Constructification begins...
Next step will start by assembling the Bottom, Sides, Back, and bottom Center Support.
I strongly suggest dry-fitting the whole Printer Stand before applying any glue. This helps to get you comfortable with the assembly process before you've got a bunch of gooey glue all over the place.
