This lazy susan is made from Purple Heart, Celery Top Pine and New Guinea Rosewood… the border is Blue Gum…
The trick to the Louis Cube pattern is being able to cut precise diamonds with a 60 degree/120 degree corners… I use the Mitre Express from Incra for its accuracy…

That looks great Larry. I think it is the best Louie cube designs I’ve seen. The contrast between the woods is very striking.

Great Job Larry, that is a real eye catcher.
I love the pattern and choice of colours.
Thanks for sharing.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

You are right Larry, the precision of the cut is critical and you have have nailed it perfectly. I am sure the glue up is also tricky. Thanks for sharing such a great project.

Looks great Larry and yes, I learned how critical it is to be precise on those 60/120 degree angles.
