Earlier I made the type of book/newspaper/magazine holder as shown in the first photo. The problem with this is it almost falls apart from the vertical open side. One can tie the flanks with a spring or a used shoelace.
Step 1: The Previous Version
This time I have attempted the box type holder.
1. a used plastic edible oil can or milk can (pic # 2,3,&4)
2. a large paper cutter (1st pic)
3. a sketch pen or a marker, and
4. waste paper or piece of clothe for cleaning out left over oil/milk
Step 2: Marking
Take a sketch pen or marker and draw straight lines around top of the can where the curves end. Simple.
Step 3: Cut It Open
Carefully cut the upper part of the can from the drawn lines. It will look like in the pic here.
Step 4: Clean It Up. It's Ready
Clean the can from inside with a waste paper first and then wash it. Wipe the inside with a dry clothe and let it dry in the open air.
The rack is ready.
