I was flying somewhere and had nothing to read but the Skymall magazine. I saw a little bookcase like this but it was $200. I thought, hey I could make that out of a small piece of plywood and some scraps I had laying around the workshop. It was a weekend project. Puttting it on a lazy susan bearing allows it to sit in a corner. Another Christmas present.

This is a clever way to use scraps. Thanks for showing.

It looks about 2 ft square and a little higher. Does it makes sense?

Perfect! I can think of a couple of rooms in my house that could use one of those. Great space saver!

Nice looking bookcase. We used to make a four tier unit similar to this at prison industries. If any one would like a set of prints I would be happy to send you a set.
