Many thanks to SPalm for his original posting of a double Mobius Loop board a month or so ago. I found the design quite interesting but had no need for yet another cutting board, so here’s my interpretation of his design – a lazy (Susan) Mobius centerpiece for a round dining table.

My initial attempt at the Mobius design required so many ‘design modifications’ that it ended up as an 8” diameter circle good for little more than a base for the board you see here. Made from walnut, purpleheart, cherry and maple. I used a polyurethane finish for durability, and the rotating mechanism is from Rockler. Now every time I sit at the table I am reminded of the remarkable creativity of other L.J.’s!

Very cool Mobius Continuem. Or a beautiful Lazy Susan which ever you prefer. It doesn’t look that simple to me.

Hey Thumbs, that is a purty thing. Good job! I may have to give one of those a try one of these days. Like the combination of woods. Thanks for posting.

Nice save on the first attempt! I have a picture of one of these on my workbench. I need to turn it into real wood. Yours looks great.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

Cool design, almost looks a cube at first glance. I like your choice of woods.

Very nice. The woods work very well together and I really like the idea of making it into a lazy susan. Bet you’ll get lots of comments when you have company for dinner!

Great job!
