A lazy Susan is a convenient way to organize your cupboards. It puts everything within reach and makes use of the space in the back of the cupboard. If your kitchen doesn't come equipped with a lazy Susan, you can install one yourself. Follow these steps to learn just how easy it is to install some added convenience.
Things You'll Need
- Power drill with bits
- Lazy Susan bearing
- Round board with glued edge
- Round head screws
- Self-adhesive felt
- Finishing materials
Measure the inside of your cupboard for the size of the circular board that you will need. Measure it left to right and front to back. Go to your local do-it-yourself store such as Lowe's or Home Depot and buy the necessary supplies.
Lay down a plastic mat. Stain and finish the circular board and let it dry.
Place the circular board upside down on a flat surface. Put the lazy Susan bearing top down in the center of the circular board.
Line up the 3/4-inch hole located on the bottom of the bearing with the medium hole in the top of the bearings. The small holes in the top of the bearing should align with the 5/16-inch holes in the bottom of the bearing.
Use the power drill to pre-drill some holes in the circular board for the round head screws. Turn the 3/4-inch holes over each small hole to install the screws.
Put the self-adhesive felt on the bottom of the bearing. This will prevent it from scratching the inside of your cupboard.
Install the lazy Susan inside your cupboard were you want it. You can leave it free-standing or you can fasten it down by screwing down the bearing.
