    It didn’t come out as well as I hoped, but here’s a replica for Second Life! I’m kind of a bilbiophile (I’ve been making/collecting books on SL) so this made a good building project for me. I’m going to work on improving it in the 2.0 version with the lamp (which I forgot) and maybe the trim (Not sure how to do that except to either use lots of parts, or make my own texture).

    Doesn’t look very comfortable. Some extra padding would help!

    The padding seems redundant once you land on the floor after it tips over.

    Post #15 is the best comment EVER.

    It should have non-slip material lining the bottom of each shelf so the books don’t fall out. And since it’s been such a big deal lately, I’m wondering if the lamp is an incandescent or a CFB…

    This picture is useless without measured drawings.

    I can see how this could be a great solution for me. I have books everywhere in my living room. That would make it neat.

    This could be an excellent contender for the Unshelved “Pimp my bookcart” contest .

    Definitely needs some cushions…but it’s a great idea!

    Conceptually I love it (my wife and I are always looking for ways to wedge more books into our living space).

    Realistically though it looks like one of the least comfortable, un-child-safe pieces of furniture one could wish to own.

    Bit of a design flaw, considering that the books will fall out of the arm-rests when you wheel the thing around.

  17. secondhand nation says:

    Definitely a proto-type. Ditch the wheel and the teeny light and you might be on to something.

    Does four things, none of them well.
    - dim light
    - limited storage
    - uncomfortable seat
    - wobbly transport
    Looks like something Rand Peltzer from “Gremlins” would invent (cf. the “Bathroom Buddy”).
