Intro: (Not)Lazy Susan
This double-tier lazy susan works very hard at keeping all my bathroom stuff organized in a very small amount of space (hence the title of NOTlazy susan).
I tried to upload a video of it in motion, but I don't think that functionality exists yet for Instructables (hint hint :-) ).
- 2 Lazy susan bearings
- Wood cut to 2 discs
- small block of wood to space the 2 lazy susans
Step 1: Step 1: Find Center of Disks and Supporting Squares
I like to do this using the fact that the intercepted arc for an angle inscribed in a semi-circle is 180 degrees.
Step 2: Step 2: Center Bearings on Wood Pieces
Step 3: Step 3: Attach Bearings to Disc and Then Supporting Piece
Step 4: Step 4: Create a Spacer With a Block of Wood
Here, I've attached the wood to the bearing (screwed to a piece of wood) with rubber bands b/c I wanted to be able to detach the entire piece easily but I also wanted stability. Rubber bands worked perfectly.
