Jim, I am a member of a metalworking group near DC called CAMS. One guy was just recently asking about building a shelving unit for ALL his canned finishing products that would slowly rotate them to keep the solids from settling. We threw around some ideas and came up with these:

This seems to require too much effort, and has its other problems.

However, it seemed the simplest to just mount a shelving unit on the wall using something like a lazy susan bearing. Then use a geared down motor to rotate the whole sheving unit 1 RPD ( Revolution Per Day ) . Of course the unit would have to have doors ( maybe even clear plexi. or mesh wire ) on the front, and any void space would need filled with some kind of filler. Probably bubble wrap. Here’s the final idea:

This seems the simplest idea to build with less wasted space. And with 10×10 x 10 cubbies, it only needs 6” clearance from the floor. The blue circle shows the clearance for the rotation.

-- Backer boards, stop blocks, build oversized, and never buy a hand plane--
