Today, I completed my fourth ‘Lazy Susan’ that will set on the work bench in my home. The several prior LS were filled with defects and difficulties in using.
This unit has been laid out so as to fit an available shelf in my new home. I still have my big work shop, but needed this unit to help me with ‘Honey-Duz’ that are common in a ‘New’ 40 year old home.
made from .75” & .50” Baltic Birch Ply 23” D x .75” bottom
Foot is 14” square x .75”
Lazy Susan bearing plate from Wood Craft
The ‘Box’ is 17” x 13” x 13”
The shelves were firmly attached with multiple screws and drilled as one.
Most screws were #8 wood screws x 1.0”, 1.25”, 1.5” and 2.0” and were waxed
All screw holes were pre-drilled
The square ‘box’ was screwed and glued.
the perimeter curved ‘shelves’ are attached with only screws to allow future modification.
Curved ‘shelves’ are made from multiple layers of Baltic Birch, glued and finished as a single piece.
the two ‘Skinny-Slots’ are of Western Maple, and also only screwed to allow future modification.
The holes [in which tools are stored]vary from 1.75” d to 0.50” d
Most of the hole are at least 0.75” BETWEEN holes.
Holes for larger tools are up to 1.5” BETWEEN holes.
The slots were made from various sized hole, and cut out between.
All holes were either turned with a 1/4”r round-over bit OR with a chamfer bit.
Contrary to earlier models I made, I use NO magnets in this unit.
I will be applying ‘Wiping Poly’ before putting it into service..
