My Spray Booth & Lazy Susan by Beano Boy

It must be said that one can buy a Lazy Susan  on Line,and they are used mainly for cake displays,and i guess one could present a modelled scene upon them,but they are cheap and of course made of plastic. So no good at all for my own special needs,because i wanted a good cheap Spraying Booth with a sturdy heavy duty ,`Lazy Susan`. installed within it it. A couple of months ago i replaced the old paper card that was fixed to the wall surrounding my photo shoot table. Well after two years or so i figured it needed replacing. So rather than waste it ,i used it to make some  small model buildings ,and also I used it on part of my ongoing Foundry build. The leftovers i used to make the Spraying Booth and the Lazy Susan presented here. I designed it to have Fin`s underneath to aid the movement,and made those rather large because if paint is sticky upon them i did not want to use my fingers to move it around. So the wide fins were designed so a simple paint brush handle can easily move it around to the next position needed. So i have completed the scratch build ,and today the final thing to do was drill it out to except the spindle. Because i want to use a combination of Wood Dyes & Acrylic Paints i needed something that would not melt,so a cheap plastic one would never do.  I could have made one out of wood,but i soon realised i could use what i had and save lots of money by doing it. A little wax upon the wooden spindle and it spins like a Whirligig outside in the wind. Magic!                                                                                                                                           
Here are a few photo`s
                                                                                         


A heavy solid three and a half inch base was made simply by sticking paper layers together.








A Half Joint cut into both the top section card and the large left over sheet allows for the Booth construction and a few heavy books nicely tuck the edges in for now.




                                                  Ease of movement every time.

                                                        Sorry no Fair Ground Music!


                               This is much better than the old cardboard boxes i usually use.


Made of recycled paper card and glue. The cost Nothing.It was money well spent for other purposes long ago.  So Guys this is my Spray Booth & Lazy Susan.BB
