For the past couple years my computer desk has been arranged such that when I sit at it I face a wall. This made sitting at my computer pretty unpleasant. However, the desk’s positioning allowed me to watch movies from my couch and I didn’t want to lose this functionality. (Life is hard, I know). Anyway last week the solution finally dawned on me. All I need is a rotating top for my desk! Then it could be placed in the middle of the room and I could view it from anywhere. A little bit of googling produced this how-to video for building a lazy susan, and this product from Home Depot. Thankfully I live in the amazing community of Berkeley, CA so I had little trouble finding a free table top from Craigslist and I was able to borrow tools from the Berkeley Public Library’s extremely handy Tool Lending Library (this place is an awesome example of what a smart local government can do right). Add to this my existing computer desk and a couple hours of planning and labor and voila!
