1/ The frame

Put the top box and 4 x bars cut 45 degree at both ending together

    And on the other side of MDF panel :

2/ The turntable

Parts :

  • Main dish
  • Lazy susan rotator
  • Dish gear
  • 2 dishes for spacer
  • M8 bearing
  • Bearing holder
  • Bolt and nut

Before installing the gear to the main dish, I thread the holes on the gear to avoid it being cracked.

Now, I continue with rotating components. The plug bearing (6 x 22 x M8) to Spacer Bottom Plate, then tie it with Bearing Holder as in the following photos, but remember to align both the Spacer Bottom Plate parts accurately before put bolts into.

On the other side, it will look like in the following photos

A M8 bolt was used in the center bearing.

 The next step is to attach the main gear dish and the rotator platform.

 After that putting all main components above is going to be like this :

3/ Legs :

We are about to complete the hardware job by making legs for it =).

4/ Motor :
