Originally published in Volume 13 of The Scale Cabinetmaker, The "Lazy Susan" Apartment was one of Helen Dorsett's last roombox projects. Spread across two issues, the series focused on an experimental apartment design from the 1920's that incorporated a turn table that housed a small kitchen, a narrow "library" (desk and bookcase), a fold-away bed, and a closet, with two chests of drawers. The apartment design was submitted as an example of an urban efficiency apartment for a single person or a young couple just starting out. Although the apartment was never actually built (mostly because there was no way to actually plumb the kitchen), the model provides plenty of challenge and hours of modeling pleasure (not to mention a roombox that will generate a fair number of "ohhhhs and ahhhhs"). The book includes complete plans, patterns, and instructions for the Lazy Susan Apartment and the furnishings, as well as a crash course in metalworking and bending (with an added bonus of a very cool bending jig for use with bentwood furniture):
