This is not an original idea, I picked it up in a magazine some time ago – It took me all of 30 minutes to make, but it will last and be used for a lot longer than that.

The material is just compressed chip flooring I had left over, the ball bearing castors I got from Rockler, for a project that never came to life abouit 2 years ago.

The top is coated in several coats of Finish Wax.

This will come in very useful in the next few days as I start to spray the stain and finish onto my chair project.

I hope you enjoy, it refreshes the memory cells or provides inspiration.

Oh, that’s a terrific idea. I’ve been hanging with wire and spinning, but I don’t have as good of control as this would have. I feel like an idiot for not thinking about it. Thanks for showing!

Great Idea. I actually screwed a lazysusan bearing on a top that I made that I use for spraying. I also made a screw board that have 50 drywall screws sticking straight up that you can put stuff on and not mar the finish while spraying. Well only 35 screws.

I’ll try to get some pictures of it.

Here is the picture

If I remember right, David had a system to lift the work piece off his table. No spinning his I belive.

We use a very similar system in the shop, as Karson, screws and all!.

But I do like what Tony has made here.
