Lazy Susan Table
Next, select your style/profile below The 36” large lazy Susans are available in a heavy duty style or a low profile. If this is a lazy Susan for table use, we recommend having at least a 60” round or square table or at least a 48” wide rectangle table as pictured above. Selecting your profile depends on the use and the look you want. The heavy duty style has a 3 inch profile. The low profile has a 1.5 inch profile. Both use the same heavy duty ball bearing hardware. The difference is that a bottom support is added to the heavy duty style making it more stable carrying heavier loads while the low profile lazy Susans rest directly on the hardware offering a more sleek appearance. Both styles are made with heavy 1 inch thick wood, no press board or Formica but real wood, thick, strong, built to last, and finished to your liking. 36 Inch Heavy Duty Large Lazy Susan If you are going to place heavy objects and want a very sturdy surface near the edge, then the heavy duty lazy Susan is best choice. It is attached to a matching 1 inch thick bottom 24” support so that only 6” cantilevers which offers great support. The turntable hardware uses steel ball bearings and is rated to hold up to 1,000 pounds. We grease the bearings so that they operate quietly during turning. This style is great for a large table centerpiece, heavy product presentations, heavy catering projects, holding large food pots, statues, heavy speakers, or any large object that needs extra support. Protective rubber feet prevent sliding while in operation and protect your table surface. 36 Inch Low Profile Large Lazy Susan The low profile style is perfect for a large lazy Susan for table use. Serve and share meals with large family gatherings for an experience they will remember. Instead of having to get up or pass around, just turn the table to self serve then replace for others. And the best feature is a fun and memorable experience! The low profile Susan rest directly on the hardware and has a 12” cantilever around the edge so for best results evenly distribute the weight. The 36” low profile lazy Susan will function smoothly with only 1/4” clearance above the surface of your table. Rubber feet protect your table surface and prevent slipping or sliding when turning. Next, choose your style/profile to see your coloring, staining, or finishing choices.
Lazy Susan Table
It is likely that the explanation of the term Lazy Susan, and who Susan was, has been lost to history. Folk etymologies claim it as an American invention and trace its name to a product – Ovington’s $8.50 mahogany “Revolving Server or Lazy Susan” – advertised in a 1917 Vanity Fair, but its use well predates both the advertisement and (probably) the country.

A Lazy Susan (or Sally Wagon, or Dragon Sally, or Downtrodden Sally) is a turntable (rotating tray) placed on a table or countertop to aid in distributing food. Lazy Susans may be made from a variety of materials but are usually glass, wood, or plastic. They are usually circular and placed in the center of a circular table to share dishes easily among diners. Owing to the nature of Chinese cuisine, especially dim sum, they are common at formal Chinese restaurants both on mainland and abroad. In Chinese, they are simply known as 餐桌转盘 (p cānzhuō zhuànpán) or “dinner-table turntables”.

There is a table arrangement used much in Germany, which has now found its way to America, though it is still by no means common. The German frau calls it “Lazy Susan”, but it is entirely different from our product used for salt and pepper shakers. Its only point of similarity is the swivel upon which it turns. The one which joys my heart is of mahogany, and it turns automatically at the slightest touch. It contains seven china dishes, six of which are trapezoids, the center one being octagonal. The trapezoids fit about the center octagon, forming a perfect whole.
Part of the mystery arises from the variety of devices that were grouped under the term dumb waiter (today written dumbwaiter). An early 18th-century British article in The Gentleman’s Magazine describes how silent machines had replaced over-garrulous servants at some tables and, by the 1750s, Christopher Smart was praising the “foreign” but discreet devices in verse. It is, however, almost certain that the devices under discussion were wheeled serving trays similar to those introduced by Thomas Jefferson to the United States from France, where they were known as étagères. At some point during or before the 3rd quarter of the 18th century, the name dumb waiter also began to be applied to rotating trays. (Jefferson never had a Lazy Susan at Monticello but he did construct a box-shaped rotating book stand and, as part of serving “in the French style”, employed a revolving dining-room door whose reverse side supported a number of shelves.) Finally, by the 1840s, Americans were applying the term to small elevators carrying food between floors as well. The success of George W. Cannon’s 1887 mechanical dumbwaiter then popularized this usage, replacing the previous meanings of “dumbwaiter.”
