I saw a picture of this and thought how much fun it would be to build. THe only measurements I had was that it was 12″ x 12″ x 12″. I deduced from the picture how the interior was constructed. I used mortise and tenon on the legs and strechers. Breadboard ends on all of the shelves. I used walnut that was sawn locally and matched all of the shelves to run in sequence. I used a ball bearing lazy susan because the client (my daughter) would be using the book shelf to hold very large and heavy books.

If some one has the plans for this book shelf could you share them with me, Cynthiabaham@yahoo.com
I would like to try to make this. Does anyone have plans or do I just wing it. It would seem there might be a few tricks regarding the hinges.
I just spent the day drawing detailed plans for the boodstand using SketchUp. I think I have most of the dimensions right, based on the Woodwright's Shop episode. What is the best way to post these plans to share and get feedback?
Here is the Underhill episode:
But he doesn't get into the technicalities of the book holder--he just shows you how to do breadboards, etc...
My grandfather is building one and asked, "What purpose does the pillar in the middle serve?" Can someone help us out?
Unfortunately, the episode of Woodwright's Shop where Roy makes one of these isn't available yet...at least that I can find.
Fantastic project! I would love to see this as a project with plans inside the pages of Fine Woodworking. Have you thought of submitting it?
I don't have any more pictures, but I certainly could get some if needed.
Fantastic. Do you have any more pictures of this? Gina
