Can anyone help me find a lazy susan bearing with a diameter of about 22 inches..I'm planning to build a large wooden lazy susan foe my brother's patio table, which is kept protected from the elements.
I have searched the internet but have found nothing big enough.
Any advice gratefully appreciated.

You can make this yourself I have done several in the past.
You need two discs of 18mm MDF and if possible get some formica to face them with for a hard surface. They will work without but will wear in time. Now purchase some small glass marbles approx15mm diameter. You now need a third disc the same diameter as your mdf but slightly thinner than the marbles. 12mm ply or mdf would do.
Drill a series of holes 16mm dia and appro 15mm from the circumference equally spaced and about 50mm apart. Make sure the marbles can rotate freely in the holes or they will not work. Find a suitable screw or bolt for the centre making a clearance hole in the centre board and one of the outer boards and adjust so that the discs rotate freely on each other.
And now you have it. Cheap as chips to make and will work perfectly!
Best of luck.
