Lazy Susan

The Dominion turntable is coming along nicely but I need some way of making it turn (to put the turn in turntable 🙂 ). I decided to make a Lazy Susan in wood to be the base of the Dominion turntable.

Basically it’s a big ball bearing made from wood and with marbles used as balls. It looks like this:

I milled a circle with outer diameter 250 mm and inner diameter 230 mm and a groove for the marbles. Then I milled a ring with eight holes to hold the marbles evenly distributed and a lid with another groove. Putting it all together it looks like this:

Just to test how it will look in the end, I put one half of the Dominion turntable on top:

Now, all that is missing is a lot of sanding and then assembling the whole thing. 🙂
