The woodworking group in Boise Ada County Woodworkers has every raffle every meeting in which a member originally made a small project and that project was raffled at the meeting. The “winner” then makes an item for the next meeting. I “won” the raffle. I’m picking my brain for some small project that might show off a skill and be worthy of the club raffle. My Woodsmith magazine showed up and this rotating knife storage showed up. I had magnets left over from a previous project a bunch of free hard maple and several sheets of quilted maple veneer that I had won at a previous raffle. I had to buy a 3” lazy susan bearing for a total cost of about $3.50. I did have to buy a router bit but that will be used for several more of these. It took about 3 days to build this most of that glueup time. I like to give glue at least 12 hrs in the clamps. its Hard maple and quilted maple veneer finish with 1 coat amber shellac and 2 coats clear shellac. The nest one of these I make I will use a plastic for the bearing. The lazy susan bearing leaves too much wobble for my taste. First time I tried veneering. Overall it came out pretty good. I went to my daughter’s for a week so don’t know how it went over at the meeting.

Wow! da’ja vue … I just read that article last week, and ordered some Chicago Cutlery steak knives to go on the storage rack. I got the magnets in the mail just today so I’m ready to start. Any suggestions on a better Lazy Susan bearing??
Did you have a problem setting up the birds mouth bit or did you hit it right off?

Grumpy. If from MLCS the directions are very good set it with a scrap piece hit it the first time. I was thinking of trying a piece of plastic.
