After making my first 2 cutting boards my Sister-In-Law made a comment that she didn’t have anything that I had made, but she didn’t really want a cutting board….

I am very familiar with her house and decided to make a lazy susan for her eat-in kitchen table. I used some Zebra Wood and something else I don’t really remember now.

Ended up in a time crunch with this and had some help from a guy with a drum sander… now I think I really need drum sander – my wife disagrees…

I really like this. My wife has been after me to build one for her. How wide is yours?

you did a great job with the pattern. could the other wood be “paduck”. did you cut the circle on the table saw or band saw? It’s funny my wife said the same comment to me about needing a drum sander.

Thanks for all the nice comments.

daves1 – It is about 16” in in diameter
SASmith – I used THIS ONE from woodcraft.
amagineer – It might have been “paduck”, I just can’t remember. I cut it on my Bandsaw with a very quickly put together single use circle cutting jig.

We’re glad you chose a Triangle bearing, especially since you made such a beautiful server. This is a perfect application for our lazy susan bearings. If you have a problem with noise, you might be interested in our greased lazy susan bearings.
