Hello Cyber Friends!
I finally got the 3inch lazy susan casters in the mail! Yeah! Let’s get to it.
Here are the material’s for where we are at.
As you can see the wood pieces are together and painted. I have chosen 3 each 8oz. jars and 2 each 4 oz. jars. I will leave the metal rings on but remove the top insert.
First thing first. I decided where I wanted to put the clamps on each side. Then I took the sheet metal screws and screwed it thru a clamp space and into the wood.
The lazy susan hardware installation comes next. I used 4 screws and screwed it to the bottom of the main body of the caddy first.
As you can see the lazy susan bearing is made so I can angle it to get the screws in. Now we center it on top of the base and screw it in.
Here is a picture of how it’d look to put the base together with the main body.
It is all together but the clamps have extra metal ribbon on them. I tried wire cutters, not working on this. The only way I could get them cut down was using the wire cutters to bend it back and forth close to the clamp hardware. Doing this caused it to break off. Not the easiest or quickest way but it worked. Due to the sharp edges I wanted to cover it up for safety. I would definitely cut myself if I didn’t. The only thing I came up with was duck tape. Yep. White duck tape.
It is even and balanced, holds the jars and doesn’t tip if its filled or partially filled. I then put the vinyl non-skid feet on the bottom. These are stick on so pretty simple to put in place.
Wala! Here is the final product with makeup in it.
Otherwise, with all the details, waiting for shipping, etc. you may find it worth purchasing from LivingSewBeautiful.
Have a great weekend and thanks for tuning back in for part 2 of the Desk Caddy! See ya next time.
