Jefferson revolving bookcase
« on: October 21, 2016, 12:01:47 AM »
I am interested in building a Jefferson revolving bookcase.  Are there any known dimensions of the original bookcase and how does the pivot mechanism operate?

Here is a link to a video of Roy Underhill's show on building the bookstand. There used to be plans on Roy's site for the bookstand, but I just looked and they are no longer there. I would think if you contacted Roy he would send them to you.   http://www.pbs.org/video/2365004559/ 

It is my plan to build 2 of them this winter, good luck on yours.

That's really nice, and great pictures. Thanks for sharing.  I see in your original post you were looking for plans; did you ever find them?

I utilized a plan Roy Underhill sent to me.
