Step 1

Sourcing all parts

Begin the project by sourcing all parts. For this project, we resourced scrap material we had laying around our workroom, such as extra PVC pipe, plywood and even re-purposed an old end table for the turntable piece. Turntables can also be purchased at most local home centers. Tip: If you purchase a lazy susan turn table with the bearing plate and base included, you do not need to purchase a separate piece, and should skip step 2.

Step 2

Setting the plate onto the plywood

Next, set the bearing plate onto the plywood to determine appropriate size of the plywood base. Keep ¼”extra plywood on two sides, while keeping 2” extra plywood on the other 2 sides. Then, cut the scrap plywood with the Dremel Ultra-Saw™.
