My wife wants a 24” lazy susan on the breakfast table. I have a round pine blank that is 24” diameter and 1” thick. My question is, will a 12” bearing work or should I go up to a 16”. The price goes up considerably but I’m wondering if the turntable will tip if a pot of beans is set close to the edge of it. (Please don’t assume I eat beans for breakfast; we eat all our meals there)
I plan on recessing the bearing into my blank 3/8” and attaching non skid feet to the bearing instead of having a wooden base.
