I need some quick help. I’m making a Lazy Susan for my wife for Christmas; it will be around 18 inches in diameter. My question is, what size of hardware should I get? It will be used on the table to put various items on during dinner. My thought is to have a 15 – 17” diameter hardware for stability, but being a non-engineer, I usually tend to ‘over engineer’ things. Thanks so much.

I think a 12” turntable would be more than adequate. I make some lazy susan bowls and make my own hardware which is way smaller in comparison.

I used 12” LS hardware for a 30” D painting Lazy Susan. Works very good

A 6” would carry that load if you make a larger base.
