The original revolving bookcase was designed so the entire unit rotated on the legs. This was fine in their day because the candle or oil lamp did not have a cord that would wrap itself around the case. I designed this bookcase so the top remains stationary and the inner bookshelf with four compartments revolves. That way the lamp stays put.

The revolving bookshelf rides on a 12" diameter lazy Susan, available at most large hardware stores or through Rockler.

Overall dimensions:

18" x 18" x 26-11/16" high.
