    Default Corner cupboard

    I have looked at a few solutions and haven't seen anything worthwhile, from cheap Ikea to $1000+ Hafelle.
    Can anyone figure how this one closes up:

    Did a bit more reading and there seems to be a concensus to forget about these types and go for a super lazy susan. I know it is a different carcass but I am still in the design phase. So did a quick search for the super lazy susan but not finding an Oz supplier.

    Yeah, the list price was over $1000 US, just for one cupboard, there are so many crazy contraptions for a corner cupboard, each one as expensive as the next, I prefer simple things with less moving parts which don't tend to break, such as a fized shelf, then a lazy Susan (is that politically correct nowadays) I know two Susans and they deffinetly are not Lazy.

    This name must have originated from a disgruntled male with his partner ?

    No, I am not a Susan. My full name is Suzanne. But I can be a bit lazy on occasion.

    Just been through the kitchen rack fitout, try these guys:

    Magic Basket Doorpull Soft Close Left Hand. Minimum Cabinet Size: 700W X 520D X 530H & 450W Door - Wilson & Bradley

    About $650 for the unit.

    I do have an older unit I purchased from them almost 10 years ago but never got around to fitting it, would be happy to do a deal on it but you would need to arrange courier, if interested send me a pm.

    Regards Dave

    And....I'm not at all convinced you'd fit into the cupboard...

    However as an idea it could work...

    Shauck sits in the cupboard.

    You tell her what you want.

    She finds it and passes it to you..

    Job done!

    I can't help thinking that this version could be a heck of a lot squeakier than the one I got from IKEA. Potentially high maintenance too with constant adjustment required. I also reckon the passing mechanism could be unsafe because it could easily be over done (tinned tomotoes at 40 km/h anyone?) if it wasn't properly (politely) triggered each time.

    In an effort to be more useful (and less dangerous to the Suzannes of the World) I'll just leave this here:

    That's an interesting take on what I have seen, how does this one rotate?

    It could end up being like a Siri for the kitchen...

    ask for

    "tinned tomatoes"

    and get back

    "was that skinned potatoes?"

    I believe the squeaking could be kept at bay with a constant and liberal supply of lubrication...not sure about the adjustment though...

    I think that was the best laugh I've had in a while. Very funny, the lot of ya.

    it isn't going to solve your problem tho. I'd need my own supplies so there'd be no room for yours.

    Nah, simple as...

    I thought only old cabinetmakers ran on old marbles.

    I was perplexed until I realised that the centre would be set back from the cupboard edge so radii would need carful selection.
    Am starting to favour the 'super lazy s..' idea as the slider in-out-sllde etc thing needs quite a big door and if items drop off retrieval is difficult.
    Any idea where to buy one-offs of these bearings?
