14” diameter x 2” tall

Mahogany, Wenge, Ash, Oak

Teak Oil finish with Polyurethane clear coat

This is an original design. The razor-sharp corners on the inlay was done using the intersecting tapers method, which was tricky because of the raised perimeter lip. The bearing is completely hidden by the Ash-Mahogany segmented skirt

Love that you’ve hidden the hardware.

The inlay is also sharp!

Nice job! This is the nicest lasy susan I ever saw. Being dished makes if even more refine and elegant.

Congrats and thanks for sharing. By the way, how did you dished it? At the lathe, with a router?
