This is my fourth Lazy Susan using the Mosaic in Wood technique – I call this one Seven Sisters.

648 individually hand cut pieces of Walnut, Cherry and Maple shop cut veneers – approximately 0.100 thick. Approximately 17” in diameter and 1.75” high it spins beautifully on a 6” Triangle greased bearing.

Finish is multiple coats of oil based poly, brushed on with a natural bristle brush, sanded between coats. Final polishing was done with 4000 grit Mirka pads on my ROS.

This was another fun one to do, and I am pleased with how it turned out.

Thanks for looking!

Wow. This shows a person with so much artistic patience. I see this pattern a lot in my travels to the Middle-East.

Thanks everyone for the nice feedback, it is always great to get some love.

For anyone that is interested, this type of work is inspired by fellow lumberjock Robin Tucker (WoodMosaic) who has several wonderful projects and blogs detailing his technique for producing these on the site.
