A few weeks ago, my wife and I had dinner at a friend’s house and they had a tall dinner table with a Lazy Susan in the middle. The Lazy Susan made passing things around the table easy. My wife thought this was a great idea and asked me to make one for our table. He’s my version of a Lazy Susan. The majority is pine with an accent strip of walnut.

I cut the pieces of Pine and Walnut on my table saw. I then joined the edges for gluing. The pieces were glued and clamped and left to dry. After the glued pieces dried, I cut the circles. The band saw circle cutting jig I’ve previously posted was used to cut the circles. After cutting the circles, I planed the pieces flat and sanded with 80 and 120. The circles were finished with Danish Oil.

Nice looking Lazy Susan. That Walnut accent with that pine sure makes it jump up and shout.
