Revolving Book Stand

     RBS full     This project was inspired by a 200 year old revolving book stand, which can be seen on display in Thomas Jefferson’s office at Monticello.  Mr Jefferson’s book stand would hold 5 books (1 on each side and 1 on top) and would close down to a 12 inch X 12 inch cube, when not in use.

     My goal was to design and build a revolving book stand that would support the larger and heavier    reference books, used in my generation and still in use today.  The result was a larger and more ruggedly built book stand that will hold 6 books ( 1 on each side and 2 on top).  The 4 side panels are  19 inches wide X 14 inches high.  Each panel has 3 angle adjustments. The 2 top panels are 19 inches wide X 9 inches high with 2 angle adjustments.

     This piece can be ordered in a variety of wood species.
