How to Make a Motorized Lazy Susan. Perfect for Shooting Video!


I show you how to make this motorized lazy suzan with a rotisserie motor. This is motorized lazy susan is used quite a bit in my videos to highlight and show off my work. When combined with zooms and pans you can create some professional looking video shots without spending a lot money on video gear. What you’ll need is a rotisserie replacement motor found on Amazon and a lazy susan bearing that you can get at any hardware store. I’m using baltic birch plywood for the base construction and veneered plywood for the rotating table. This is an easy project for anybody with a few tools. In this video I’m using a table saw and a band saw but you could easily replace those tools with a hand held jig saw. This motorized lazy susan is great for video work but also makes still photography a more efficient process by placing your subject on the table, turn it on and start shooting photographs without having to stop and rotate the item by hand. This will give you consistent lighting while using the same backdrop and allows you to shoot on a tri-prod. If you are looking for more details and photos of the build process check out the link below to my website along with links to amazon.com to purchase the necessary items.
