Scrabble Turntable

B, I know that you were far too busy packing to photograph this and blog it.
However, in my view, the world's ardent Scrabble players (particularly if they happen to be handy with wood) should not miss out on the impromptu design that you and Leo came up with for a Scrabble turntable because we didn't like the look of the one that is commercially available.
As we were purchasing Super Scrabble, the challenge was to come up with a design that was stable, would support a board that folds into 4 and could be packed away easily when not in use.

It was a divison of labour - I sourced the scrabble set, dictionary and timer while you made the turntable! Excellent work, lovely!
