The Best of TSC: The "Lazy Susan" Apartment c. 1920s

Price: $10.00

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. 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 the Lazy Susan Apartment and the furnishings, as well as a crash course in metalworking and bending.
