DIY Plan: Rotating Storage Unit

DIY Plan: Rotating Storage Unit


Rotating storage units are nice as they work well for small spaces, such as a kid’s room. A quality rotating storage shelf like the one shown in the left two images can easily cost hundreds of dollars! I thought this was pretty cool and would be a great space saving design… not just for a teenagers bedroom. So, I did some digging and found some DIY plans from the super star of DIY furniture – Ana White! Here is the shopping list:
