A lazy susan laminated up using a technique I saw in a post a while ago, taping two boards together and then cutting them at the same time on the band saw to swap the two middle bits out. I had some problems in the middle cut, so I ended up sanding it back to size using the bandsaw and a spindle sander to get the two halves to match, then steam bent a piece of canary wood to run down the middle to hide the issues. Ended up looking pretty good.

The other woods are cherry, walnut maple and purpleheart.

Very nice. I love your choices of wood. Can you comment on how you finished it?

Ahh yes, I finished it with tung oil. I used linseed oil on one of the other ones I made, they both make a nice finish since it is a penetrating oil and finishes nice and smoothly.

I really like the asymmetrical design and the canary wood adds a lot to the overall look. Great job.

-- JoeR Nothing that I could make will ever be perfect but I'll use it anyway.
