I just joined and this is my first posting. Sorry for the sub-standard pictures as I’m not much of a photographer it’s the best I could do. The is my entry in the Secret Compartment contest. It’s a rotating corner bookcase made from birch 3/4” plywood, trimmed in ash. Finish is shellac (my favorite.) The center case rotates on an industrial strength “lazy suzan” that I bought from McMaster Carr for less than $10. The upper is a simple pin/bushing assembly. To do it over, I would not have used plywood for the outer case. Even though 3/4 birch is stable, it sill bowed a little which meant for some last minute sanding. Also, putting the case on an unlevel floor is a real drag because it’s very heavy and took forever to shim so it would operate properly.
Comments appreciated, thanks for looking.
By the way, I really love this site. The 2×4 contest is my favorite.
