1 piece of wood 11x11 (top and bottom pieces need to be larger than the lazy susan piece)
1 piece of wood 12x12x2 or take a piece of wood 11" x 11" and add pieces of wood on each side to make it a 2" base--that's what we did.
8 pieces of dowel each 15" long
Drill with 1/4" bit
Lazy Susan Turntable
Paint or stain
(1) On the top piece of wood, space out and drill 8 holes with a 1/4" drill bit. A 1/4" dowel were the perfect size for our American Crafts rolls of ribbon.
(2) Then attach the lazy susan turntable to the top piece of wood.
(3) Drill a access hole in that top piece. This will give you access to the bottom piece so you can drive a screw into the bottom piece of the lazy susan, down into the base.
(4) Then attach the lazy susan to the bottom piece with a screw (through the access hole)
Yes, this involves measuring and a drill. You can purchase the lazy susan turntable at
After you pull the ribbon off of a roll you can either use a piece of tape or a tiny pin to keep it from unraveling. Such a small thing that will prove to be so useful in your craft room! (Thanks to Chad the builder for making this for me)
