Mesquite table with large lazy susan built into the center. The family was large and wanted some way to not have to be constantly passing something and get down to eating.

A clever design. I’ve never seen a built in lazy susan. And I am a big mesquite fan. Welcome and godd job on all the projects you posted.

Love the wood and the Table. Most Asian families have round tables with an even bigger lazy susan in the middle (Just enough room left on the edge for your plate). I like the way you have built yours into the table so that it is not setting up above the eating surface. When I get around to doing my kitchen I just have to make something like this for it as well.

Thanks for sharing

Welcome to Lumberjocks. Very wonderful table and design. I have seen similar ideas, but this one is good.
Unless you are protecting an original idea, I, and I am sure many others would like to see more of this table
and the arrangement of the turntable. We are all confirmed wood junkies and I have never heard any of
us complain about too many pictures of good projects, so could you please help us ease our curiosity and
get our project fix for the day. Thank you for sharing.

I had some additional pictures of this table but can’t seem to find them. The table is made from 8/4 Texas Mesquite. It is about 65” dia and easily sits 8 people. I dado the lazy susan about 3/4” into the table top and used the largest ball bearing lazy susan I could find to keep it stable. It was largest one available at Woodcrafters and is made from Nylon I think. The lazy susan sits proud of the table top about about 1/64”. It is removable for easy cleaning. The finish is 4 coats of sprayed semi-gloss Waterlox and 1 coat satin Waterlox. After it has dried for several days, I rub it down with 0000 Steal wool and then hand wax it with Carbona wax.

If I find the additional pictures I will post them. Hope this description helps.
