When I brought this project in from the shop my wife asked two questions, 1- What is it? So I told her it was a lazy Susan. 2 – Isn’t it to small? I said I guess so if you think it is. Well neither of those questions made me feel very good about my finished work so I just left it on the table thinking I’ll just give it away as a Christmas gift. Then this morning when I get up she asked me if it was for her and said it looks perfect on kitchen table. Guess it just had to grow on her a bit.

Oh that is so true. I brought a finished bowl into the house and gave it to the wife….and said here’s one I made for you…her comment…why don’t you sell it? I noticed a couple days later it has fruit inside of it now. Really good glue up on that one. Thanks for sharing

Good looking project. I often have people ask me about making these huge lazy Susan’s. But I think if they get too big, with too much crap, all that’s going to happen is crap will fly off or shift as it spins. The further from the center, the more outward force of the spin.

What is the bit you used for the edge?

Thanks JimRochester, the edge was done with a double ogee bit run on both the top and bottom.

Excellent work. Very nice array of woods. No wonder it grew on her!
