The Small Brown Tone “Tumbling Block” Lazy Susan is based on the “Tumbling Block” quilt pattern. It measures 12” across (13 ½” tip to tip) and 2” high. There are 312 pieces on the overlay. The pieces are cut and glued in place, one piece at a time. The pattern covers the top and extends over the edge uninterrupted, to within ¼” of the table top it sits on. The stationary base is hidden on the inside, behind the edge.
The pattern has the illusion of a lot of blocks but there are as many stars as there are blocks. The design forces you to see the blocks. On each diamond, if you go to the side you are in the middle of a block. At each point you are in the middle of a star that has 6 points.
This lazy susan is made from “Hackberry, Oak, and Walnut, all native to Missouri.
The 3 pictures are of the same lazy susan, just from 3 different angles, each one looks different. The steel ball bearings let it rotate at a touch of a finger.

Now this video again was made by Tara from Etsy.com. She can take the credit for the good picture quality. I will have to take the credit for the slip of the tongue in telling you how to see the star on this Lazy Susan (don’t you just hate that when that happens?). The right way to see it is in the description above.
-- It’s not so much what we know that causes the trouble, it’s what we know that’s not so.
