Update: 4/13/2016 Lazy Susan Kitchen Device (LSKD)

My project has progressed somewhat. I changed the wooden design to an acrylic design due to the pattern being complex enough that the woodshop expected it to take 80 hours to make. I laser cut 2 sides out, but in the process of knocking out the holes, 1 frame broke. As a result to this occurrence and my budget limiting me from buying more acrylic, I changed my design to have 3 walls total. 2 walls would be wood and the last being the acrylic face I already made. I have cut most of the wood to size, made holes in it, and spray-painted it black.

I am now looking for adhesive for the acrylic and screws for the wood/swivel from Home Depot. I found a few corner L brackets to use for connecting the wood.

    Necessity is the mother of invention, I think the mix of acrylic and wood Is very cool. I think also having metal L brackets will be even more interesting. is the acrylic transparent? I think having a transparent acrylic in addition to all mentioned about + the fact that you design is cubic, it seem like a very cool aesthetic in my opinion. Although I still think it is worth it to brainstorm few ideas for add the 4th wall at low or no cost. I know the time is critical now but maybe adding a piece of fabric or a little painting on a paper would enhance the aesthetic. All in all, I’m looking forward to see your project at the expo!

  • Glad to hear its progressing along despite some hiccups. Can you sue the contrast between the wood and acrylic materials in a neat way to add to your aesthetic? I hope you’ve checked out the makerspace seems like josh may be able to lend some expertise. Also there is all kind of glue in the itll prototype room.
