    I have never seen something like this...but it is pretty cool. Like a very nice lazy susan.

    @Vonnie, you are correct, what you have is a revolving bookcase. It's quite a lovely one too. Is this a thrift store find by any chance? If so you got very lucky and probably got a very good deal on it as new ones can cost around a thousand dollars or more since both levels revolve on yours.

    Thanks for all your comments. Becky, I bought it at a yard sale about 3 years ago for $150. I searched online, but could not find one just like it. I was going to sell it, but with all the great comments and input from Becky, I think I better hang on to it.

    Library/Drum table. The reason for calling it a "Drum" table is the shape, which is quite evident. But, this is a special one as it was made for library use.

    My parents called it a telephone/magazine table. I grew up with one my dad made!

    Believe it is from the Hemingway Collection that Ethan Allen used to have. There is a taller one as well. My dream...
