Custom Lazy Susan Paint Rack

Recommended Posts

@Jeepnewbie Got 3 quick questions for you. 

 

1.  Can you tell me the diameter of the stand including the paint holders?

 

2.  Where did you get the card board to and what isn the diameter of just the tube?

 

3.  What is the diameter of the PVC piping?

Here are pics of the widths of the items. The cardboard tube came from my civilian job. I don’t remember what was shipped in it.

I really really want to try to build this even though I'm not handy with this kind of stuff at all!

 

I just need to find a tube like that. Hmmm...

Found a cardboard tube at FedEx Office for just a few bucks.  Now to find the carousel.  I have found a few on ebay and Amazon but am hoping I can find a cheaper one somewhere.

I'll look there.  I am also looking around at some cheap 8in plastic lazy susan.

 

Or maybe I can use the turn table that came with my airbrush spray booth.  I'm not sure if it will spin with the weight though.

The k cup holder had a built in lazy Susan on it. 

 

I’m looking forward to seeing another one built. 

 

I was able to find a couple different k cup holders so I might try to make a couple.  I now have all the parts needed except the pvc but that is the easiest thing to find.

 

The only problem now is that I was going to use my father in-law's band saw but it turns out he got rid of it.  All he has now is a miter saw and a scroll saw.  He also has a table sander.  I might use the miter saw to cut the pvc to length but I don't know if the scroll saw will be able to cut the sides flat or cut the little angle piece so I might have to try the sander for that part.

 

If you have any ideas I'm all ears!

Miter saw will work on cutting to length. Put a block down when pushing the pvc through so they will stop before you chop. After cutting let the blade stop before rising it up. PVC tends to stick to the blade and can break easily. The scroll saw will work if you can make a fence and have a miter gauge to help you keep them aligned. Sanding will take extremely long and will melt the PVC when removing that much material. 

 

I’m thinking of attempting this again with wood instead of PVC. Only problem there is drilling the hole at a angle.

Thanks!  I have no idea how I would make the fence and gauge but I'll try to figure something out.  I guess maybe I'll just buy a 2 foot piece of pvc to try out somethings.  I guess since I'm not heavily invested in the rest of the stuff if I can't figure it out its no big deal and I'll just call it a wash and forget it.

 

I'll let you know how it goes.

A couple of C clamps and a good smooth and straight board. Clamp down next to blade giving about a mm of space on the pic after its cut. Once one side is cut on all pieces clamp another board on the other side. The flat side would set on the second board allowing you to now cut the other side even with it. The angle cut could be free handed or left alone (it would take up a little more space).
