Can I make a turn table? I guess I am really cheap. The ones at Michael's crafts are like 40 bucks here! Help, Please!

Michaels coupons are usually 40% off a non-sale item. Sign up online and they email every week. Or lazy susan is another option. I think big lots has them for about $10 or less, not really sure.

Thankyou VNatividad. I should look in this Sunday's paper for the coupon. I forgot all about the coupons!

I know that several people have mentioned getting a lazy susan at IKEA for something like $10. You might check your local WallyWorld if you don't have IKEA. Look in the housewares department, not cake supplies. Just because it isn't designed for cake, doesn't mean it won't work.

If you're talking about the Wilton turntables at Michaels don't waste your money.

@leah_s: The closest IKEA is four hours away, in the capital of Arizona. LOL. I'll have to see if there is a WallyWorld in the city two hours away. Hehe, I live out in the middle of nowhere. icon_smile.gif Thank you though!
@tiggy2: Are the ones at Michaels junk or what?

Bed, Bath, & Beyond have several turntables.

if you really wanted to DIY, Home Depot or Lowes have kits.

oh...if you're in the middle of nowhere...well hmmm. not sure how to make one out of whatever's lying around in the house. when i'm too lazy to use mine (it's big), i'll just stick the cake on a cereal bowl and turn it by hand.

I've been known to place a small cake on it's board on top of a can of shortening and turn that. Damn, that's lazy, as the turntable is really only about 4 feet away in the base of the cabinet . . .

there's about 1' height difference between me and my husband. he sometimes stashes my turntable up in the pantry were i can't possibly reach...then cereal bowl it is!
