A lazy Susan displays more items than a standard fixed shelf and increases the storage capacity of corner-mounted cabinets. Since the lazy Susan bearing rests between the two pieces of material, access to the screws holding the bearing to the material is limited. Disassembling a lazy Susan requires a straightforward approach and a little searching.
