I will be the first to admit...I am 35 and I love building with Lego. My collection is respectable (but not huge) and I do have most bits sorted to smaller bins. But I still love the "giant pile of Lego piece search" that we all did as kids. However, I can't sit on the floor and do that for hours anymore. So its time I use my other building skills and make myself a proper Lego build station.

Here is my concept:

1. A 4'x4' table set to couch sitting height. That way I can enjoy a classic movie or show while building.
2. Have a large spinning table top so I can search through and reach pieces in the big pile
3. Have an assembly area to work in.

So I whipped up these renders to give its concept form:



This is from the top. While seated at the couch, one or two people could comfortably share this table to build off of. The spinning middle of the table sits flush with the outer table for smooth piece sliding between the two. Entire surface will probably be covered in melamine.




Here is the underside view showing the support structure for the turn table mechanism (grey circle in the middle) The long bottom legs will give this table the balance it needs to be supported by just the back vertical legs.

Dude. A lego lazy susan. It's genius.

May I suggest adding "buckets" or something where you can hold pieces that you are currently working with/coveting for later?

Right now the non spinning parts of the table are for that exact purpose, but a undermounted bucket with a drop hole may be inline.

I have added a slide out table on the side for additional piece storage
