Beautiful, but I have to ask. How did you put the raised rim on the lazy susan.

I just added it to my favorites list.

Tommy you have taken classic design… and made it yours… I love the way the rim is … and I too would like to have you blog your method of construction of the rim… I already know how the weave is made…LOL

Thanks for all the kind comments. As far as the ring goes I don’t have pictures of the process but the weave is only 1/4’ thick glued to a 3/4” plywood than the ring is a segmented ring which is notched out to fit over the weave and than put on a lathe and turned. Hope this helps.

This is a really nice lazy susan. I generally find lazies to be quite drab..but this one is fantastic. It looks like a PIE! Lovely!
