I was wondering around a woodworking store in Ottawa and they had a sale on lazy susan bearings. I figured why not pick one up and give it a shot. This was one of those projects that gave me the reason to make a few new jigs.
The lazy susan is pretty simple, I glued together two pine boards and then made a circle jig for my router and made the circle. To add a little contrast and make the lazy susan a little more interesting, I cut a curve out of one end and glued in a walnut strip.
The glue up left the boards a little warped and not having a planer, I had to make a router planer jig which I used to even up the pine boards.
To bring out the contrast a little more I opted to use linseed oil and finished it off with a polyurethane.
