I seem to spend a lot of my time making turntables.
Given the amount of stress I feel when I fire up the air brush, I’ll take anything that helps. I left a hole in the fold-down leaf for the spray booth to allow for a zero-height lazy Susan that’s sure to make painting more enjoyable.
The turntable itself is made of 1/4 inch plywood. I traced around the lid for a Tinkertoys package, which was ostensibly round, but apparently not actually round. Certainly by the time I’d run around it with the jigsaw, it was nowhere near round.
I epoxied a cheap and nasty lazy Susan mechanism to the turntable, and to a sun-shaped cover for the hole. Then, once the epoxy was good and set, I clamped my router next to the turntable and fed the turntable into it by hand. This made it much rounder, but also caused a pretty sizeable gap all the way round, which will be fine until the day a part of the airbrush rolls in there.
Until that day, I’m going to totally enjoy the happy sunshine motif and the zero-height lazy Susan. Maybe it will be enough to make me want to actually paint things.
