I just finished this piece. It is my interpretation of the antique rotating bookcase in the previous post. I used hard Maple for the shelves and fumed Oak for the upright stiles. The pegs are hand cut from Maple as well.
The Maple spline detail adds strength to the base as well as a terrific contrasting accent. It didn't take long for Jennifer to fill it up once came in the house! It spins like a dream too.
