Turn the round woodblock bottom side up and place the the metal bearing so it is aligned in the center. Use a ruler to measure the distance of each side of the square bearing to the rim of the woodblock. If the distance from each of the four sides of the bearing to the edge of the circular woodblock are equal, then it is centered.
Drill guide holes approximately as deep as your screws are long in the four holes of the bearing. Drill the holes working across the bearing (top right corner first, bottom left corner second, top left corner third, bottom right corner, for example) to ensure that bearing stays in place.
Screw in the wood screws using your screwdriver. Tighten them after all four are in place to ensure a tight fit.
Things You Will Need
- Round 1 inch thick woodblock
- Lazy Susan bearing
- 4 wood screws
- Cover the bottom of the bearing with sticky rubber grips to ensure that the lazy Susan doesn't slip on your table surface.
