    Earlier someone mentioned that their husband had taken a part from a lazy susan to make a rotary mat. I mentioned this to my husband. He went to a cabinet shop and ordered a lazy susan bearing swivel. When it arrived we mounted it, and I cut an old cutting mat to put on the top. This works like a charm. Thank you for the idea.
