    No problem with 78 rpm if you drove nails in the turn table. Wait a minute... wouldn't that stop it from turning which was the original idea? I have an idea. You could still use nails in the turn table if you put the whole record player on a lazy susan. Wouldn't that work?

    I've really got to get a life.

    Yes but at 78 rpm wouldn't the wood fly off?

    I better start my sub.

    Regardless of where you buy the turntable hardware they are amazingly reasonably priced as shown here.

    I have a 12" one between two pieces of plywood for spray finishing and I made a turntable with the same 12" ball bearing hardware for my 4 sided London Tower clock as shown here.


    As for the finishing board, I call that a porcupine board and I use a piece of scrap wood and bang about 100 long brad nails through it with my brad nailer. Takes just a couple minutes to make and yes it looks ugly but it works great. The tips of the brad nails do have a tendancy to get thick and rounded off when doing a lot of spraying so I just toss it and replace it rather than try to remove the dried up finish off of that many brad nail tips.

    Use a scrap piece of plywood. mine was about 10x12. I predrilled all the nail holes 1" apart then hammered in the nails. It was really easy. To make it turn for spraying and finishing, I just took another piece of plywood that was a little bit bigger, drilled a 1/4" hole through the middle of both and used a 3/8" bolt with a washer between the two pieces and a nut on top. Took 10 minutes. Ugly, yes. Does it work, you bet. What do you want from me, I'm a minimalist. I'll save my time and money for scrolling.

    Actually Toni Burghout has an article on a finishing board (similar concept) in an upcoming issue!

    lazy susan

    For fear of upsetting the creators of this excellant forum, I quietly whisper this "theres a lazy susan pattern in the March 2006 issue of a scrollsawing magazine produced by others" \ one thing you could use is an old record player. Remember those things that a big black thing turned on and music played when you put this arm thingy on the turning black thing? LOL

    Sharon-

    I, too, would like to build one. What size and what size of finishing nails? Did you pre-drill the nail holes first?

    Thanks,

    -Bill

    I agree with what JT said and you may want to consider a bed of nails. I made one out of 3/4 ply and finishing nails so I can keep my fingers clean when I spray on my project-but it has come in handy for drying a stained project as well-- I also wear rbber gloves when I stain or paint and that helps keep me clean..--

    There is only one main ingrediant outside of the wood and that is the bearing system. You can get them at any Home center such as Home Depot. Here is an article for a basic one for a kitchen but the same principles apply for just a work table. http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?actio...lazysusan.html

    Lazy Susan

    Hi All ~
    Anyone know how to build a Lazy Susan ? I would like to try and make one to use for putting a finish coat on a project and not worry about finger prints or missed areas.
    Thanks
    Tony .
