Countertop Turntables

Postby llwood » Tue Dec 09, 2014 8:39 pm

My sweetie's facing a health challenge so she's been taking lots of medications and vitamin supplements. The countertop was getting overwhelmed, so I designed these rotating multi-tier shelves to help store them more efficiently and still have them all accessible. Each has a riser in the top shelf so that smaller bottles are raised relative to the others. Lazy susan bearings allow them to rotate and the whole thing can be picked up and moved. This is also our first (well almost first) experience at using the wrapping gadget (for the posts).

Design by Andy, Cutting and Finishing by Marty (Thanks, Dad!)

Good job on the whole project especially the turning.
What did you put under the bottom level for feet?

Thanks, Ray. Under the bottom level is a lazy susan bearing (12" for larger one and 9" for the smaller), with felt or rubber bumpers to keep the metal off the countertop.

The shelves look great. The small lip on the shelves make it much nicer. I hope your sweetie gets well soon. That is a lot of meds on the shelves

I really appreciate the sentiment, David. It's been more than 11 months since the diagnosis and things appear to be going well.

Here you go! I'm uploading 5 attachments, that we used for the 2-tier turntable.
1. The design document that shows what it's intended to look like when finished. It has dimensions and layers for the different bits that are used for the turning of the post.
2. The post, created with the wrapping gadget. On our machine the longer dimension is in the x direction, so it wraps Y to A.
3. Bottom shelf
4. Top shelf, same as the bottom shelf except that a hole is cut the whole way through that the post fits through.
5. Riser half. The entire riser on the top shelf is 2.5 inches thick, which is too thick to cut on our machine, so we have to cut 1/2 at a time. Each half has a roundover, and the rounded over edges are glued together to make one riser with a decorative groove in the middle. The riser is glued to the top of the top shelf.

Let me know if you have any questions.
