Well I made a cutting board a bit ago and had a bunch of scraps sitting around.  The wife wanted a lazy susan and I hadn’t turned anything on the but replacement knobs for old planes (I work with a shopsmith not a wood lathe).  Here is the result.  The wood is white oak, red oak, purpleheart, with a sliver of bloodwood on each side.  15 inch diameter total…all coated with 3 coats of the General’s salad bowl finish.  Thanks for looking!

Very Cool, and you do know that now you have made one you will not be able to stop… I did one and now have over 300 under my belt…

Nice color contrast. There should be a lot of conversations around it and about it. I like the fact you took the time to make a groove near the perimeter. Well thought. This is not usual on a lazy susan.

Degoose is right, this is addictive.
