Spraying a finish on a project can sometimes be a daunting task in itself as well as keeping track of the air hose when you move around the project. As one new to spraying I wanted to make it easier and after doing a bit of looking around I decided to construct a lazy susan finishing platform which you see below:
It was constructed with ½ “ plywood which I had in the shop along with a 12” circular lazy susan bearing and eight ball bearing rollers. Got the lazy susan from Mcfeelys when they had a $1.00 freight charge and got the roller ball bearings from my local Harbor Freight.
The lazy susan was mounted to a 24” diameter base then attached a 43” square as a top spinning platform. On the underside of the top platform I mounted eight ball bearing rollers at a 36” diameter circle to support the outer edge of the spray platform. The 24” diameter ½” plywood circle added to the lazey susan was just enough so that the profile height of the ball bearing rollers were at a match to the bottom of the spinning platform with no tipping.
Works very smooth and now all I have to do is stand in one spot and spin the project during spraying. Took me about an hour and approx $25 in materials.
