Two piece lazy susan bearings???

I am designing rotating board games for rustic tables. I want to attach the boards to the tables with some type of bearing so they rotate with minimal space between the board and the table surface. Can easily find lazy susan bearings, but they seem to all require an access hole to attach the final set of screws. Does anyone know of a bearing or product available that can facilitate this attachment without an access hole (which will put a hole in the gameboard, as it is not possible to locate on the tables)...thoughts or ideas appreciated!

Well how about an enclosed lazy susan and attach via double sided tape, hot glue, etc.?

More on the design would help, type of boards, size. If these are something that will not be built in and are removable, why not build a base under the boards. That way you can use standard bearings that need an access hole. Depending on the games, storage for pieces, cards, dice, etc. might be incorporated in the base. Or, if the game boards were able to have an edging of some kind, a sub base piece could be hidden by that.

Photos attached of project...rough as it is in cellar for finishing...base is a pine form from an old pipe factory. Scrabble board is true 1" redwood reclaimed from old shelves. Board sits high in photos as it is on 3/4" pine straps just for finishing. Base is 3" solid pine top on round forms. Scrabble board is 17" diameter.
Thanks for thinking about it!

I think this is a computer setting not a site setting. This feels like PC security or web browser security.

Let me see if I can find earlier threads on this topic.

The lazy susan on my dinner table is a one piece thing that you can set on the table or take off. no need for an access hole. It just screws to the bottom of the circle board.

Understand... effort is to make the piece a game board, with the board spinnable (new word...), but not removable...thanks for the input...

you can spin on a center axle or the perimeter

You can make a stud that is one the center that spins in a hole on the support...or vise versa, OR you can contain bearings in a race like a lazy susan with no center. For a non removable "spinnable" surface, you would need to have a circ clip on the stud below the surface and accessible. OR you would have to screw up from the bottom in a lazy susan with a wooden bottom plate with access from below. If your project requires all the surfaces to be flush then the game portion needs to be in a large circular recess.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)
