Not much woodworking here but Monte’s lazy susans and a question about where to buy hardware got me thinking: could one work with no hardware? This project is the answer. It is 15” in diameter with a 12” base and 9” ‘spacer’. Pivot is a 1” diameter Jatoba dowel glued into the base and recessed into the top 5/8”. Materials: poplar stained with MW Gunstock, Jatoba dowel,1/4” plywood, leather pads on bottom. Finish: shellac and wax. It spins very freely and has no wobble (the dowel length is key to preventing wobble). Pretty quick and simple. I grew up in the country where we didn’t just run to town for something, we made it! Criticism is always accepted so have at it!
