This is my “Medium with Hackberry” Lazy Susan. The measurements are 15 1/2” across (17” tip to tip) and 2” high. This lazy susan has 9 kinds of wood, all the natural colors. There are 464 pieces in the overlay, 136 diamonds and 328 triangles. The type of wood used is listed on the bottom from the center out. On this lazy susan, starting from the center is “Tulipwood” from Brazil, a member of the rosewood family. “Philippine Mahogany” from the Philippines, “Lacewood” from Australia, “Chechen” from Mexico, “Oak” and “Elm” from Missouri, “Wenge” from West Africa, “Hackberry” and “Walnut” from Missouri,

The pattern is based on the “Lone Star” quilt pattern. The design extends over the edge to within ¼” of the table top it sits on. The stationary base is hidden on the inside, behind the edge.

On the bottom I signed it, listed the wood, and dated it. After the date the words “Foot Cut” let you know I made it on my foot powered table saw.

Beautiful work, and you did this with a foot operated table saw? That is amazing.

this is fantastic. I especially love how the “table cloth” falls over the edge of the wood. Gorgeous.
