Well I got tired of trying to spray finish all my small projects from every direction. For years I used a couple of furring strips with finish nails hammered through them. So tonight I decided to take a couple of hours and make a lazy suzan with plenty of nails through it to make the job a little easier. I think this will save me time and make things a lot better for me in the future.

Great idea.

Very nice idea, one of my next projects, a hole it hang it one a wall so one doesn’t accidently set it down on a chair and sit on it.

Bushmaster I think this would be dangerous if left out, pretty sharp points, I have a safe place to hang it when not in use. Thanks for commenting.

Is there a way of seeing the video without a facebook account?

Just made one of these last weekend with golf tees instead of nails. Still not convinced it is better than pyramids. Now I get a couple dozen small holes instead of four holes (though they may be shallower holes).

I have a similar lazy Susan solution but I use double sided tape and disposable risers, tounge depresser size hobby stcks, to hold the project!
A small box, open ends, with a flat board on top help together with the lazy Susan bearing in between.
The open ends makes it easier to handle and lighter.

It’s only impressive if you can sleep on it.
Just kidding, interesting idea.

Have your say...
