So have you ever wanted a little bit of surface and storage but didn't want to take up much space? The Wall Buddy provides this. It only sticks out 4 1/2" and hangs securely on a wall.
This innovative shelf has a countertop lip along the top so items don't easily slide off. You could put marbles on it without them rolling off. You can put more than magazines in the rack. It is thick enough to put several magazines, documents and smaller books in. The cover slides out for easy access.
For my personal work area, I use a double decker wall buddy. This really helps to give me a work area to put USB peripherals, phone, coffee, and other items. I have made these with oak and cherry hardwood but they could be made out of many types of wood.
Prices start at $80 for the single oak Wall Buddy with a stained birch plywood document cover. These covers can also be customized with your selected graphics. The white document cover above is made from 1/4" corian.
