Hi guys me again.
Just a few pics of some of the lazy susans I have made [ so far since I started making them have competed over 200 and every one different]the largest is 28” diameter.

  1. Crows Ash [Flindersia australis] with Queensland Red Cedar[Toona australis] inlay
  2. Camphor laurel [Cinnamonum camphora]
  3. Malaysian Merbau [Intsia palembanica]
  4. Striped timbers are New Guinea Rosewood [pterocarpus indicus],Tassie Blackwood[Acacia melanoxylon], Silver Ash[Flindersia Schottiana],Tassie Myrtle [nothofagus cuninghamii] and Purple Heart[Peltogyn pubescenc]
  5. Southern Coastal Cypress [Callitris columellaris]
  6. Tasmanian Blackwood [Acacia melanoxylon]

I have set up a sliding doveltail jig on my bandsaw to cut circles and one on a 12” sanding disc to smooth the edges of bandsaw marks.[ I can cut and sand a circle of any diameter in less than 2 minutes]
Many more posts to come
cheers for now and enjoy

Great looking array of susans. Keep up the good work. Lets see the jigs you use for these methods.

Larry, these are gorgeous. My personal favorite would be the Camphor.

What do you do for the base? Could you take a picture of one turned over?

These are beautiful.
