Beetle pine with 5 coats of tung Oil. Inspired by TZH cake stand. One is 14×14 and the other is 13×13. I have a small show on Monday.

Thanks for looking

Neat design ! Quite a color dufference between the two. Is that typical of the beetle kill wood ?

Nice and simple project. Good job. I like these a lot.

What do you use as the pivot point?

Good looking lazy susans, you have a nice finish that really makes the pines grain POP.

I buy the bearings from Amazon.

Dwight, the blue stain only effects the sapwood. So heartwood stays true.

Monte, ya gotta show the underside so I can figure out how to copy your design. First thing someone asked me when they saw my cake/pizza stand (yeah, they asked if it was a pizza stand) was if it spins. Thought about it, and lazy susan came to mind. Nice job, by the way, and really nice pine beetle coloring.

Here’s the bottom

If you’ve done lazy susans before, you screw bearing on the bottom first, then drill a single holein bottom that lines up with the holes in top of bearing. Insert screws through the hole to attach the top.

Thanks, Monte. Sounds fairly easy to do. I was imagining the lazy susan being attached to a center pedestal, and didn’t even think about the lazy susan being the central pedestal. Please let us know how your show goes, and the kind of feedback you get. Thanks.

Seems you’ve got an unlimited supply of that beetle kill pine! I love the blue color it induces in the wood. I’ll have to check if we’ve got similar pests here in France ;)

That is some wild color and grain in those. The finish really brings it out. These are the first square lazy susans that I recall. Bet they sell fast. Think this could be done without the bearing thing? Use a BIG dowel section for the pivot? Maybe a thin slice of wood between top and bottom to stabilize it? I may give this a try.
