I am embarking on my layout and have a very basic question - to fit a turntable into the layout do I need to cut a hole in the base board and fit the turntable into it or does it sit on the base board.

Thanks in advance for an answer!

It pretty much depends on which brand of Turntable you are going to use actually.

Fleischmann,Roco,Maerklin turntables, yes you need to cut a hole.
Hornby turntable, sits on the baseboard. No idea of Peco but guessing by its shape think you have to cut a hole.

However,having said all this, I know people using the above mentioned turntables without cutting a hole but lifting the surrounding medium either by styrofoams and fitting its edges on to it without cutting the baseboard.

But common practice is, yes you have to cut.
