Where can I find more of these?

I used to by these lazy susans from my local stained glass supplier, but the company that sold them wholesale to the trade went out of business and I and other artists can't seem to find out where they were made or if anyone else has any. They are unfinished 19 1/2" diameter round lazy susans that you can apply a glass or tile mosaic design to. One model also had a center hole to accommodate a patio umbrella. They were made of pine with a metal (wrought iron looking) band around the outside with a lazy susan ball bearing unit attached to the bottom. They were originally marketed through "The Glass Emporium", Hatfield, PA who are no longer in business. I have a picture of one but don't know how to post it on this site.

Don't know where to buy ready made, but I found the parts to make my own at Lowes a couple yrs ago, when I needed one for the mannequin I sold. I bought a ready made wooden table top and the mechanism kit to go underneath. Very easy to assemble.

Wow, I found one last month at a garage sale for a dollar. I debated whether or not to buy it. Now I see they are pricey! I will keep my eyes open at thrift shops and garage sales for these things. I have been wanting to mosaic some for a long time.

Google these search terms, then go to the "Shopping" pages:

Lazy Susan Lip

There are many listed; hope you find what you're looking for!

I also make my own. Usually cut .5 plywood 18" to 20" diameter,ball bearing assembly $8, and iron on veneer for edge. If you find any of those old round tables with the 3 screw in legs that we used to throw a round cloth over, they are a nice 20". Just sand, stain, and finish the wood veneer after you have grouted. I also always paint the rounds with white Kilz primer before mosaic pieces go on.
