I started this lazy susan a very long time ago. I just couldn’t put it off any longer. I was going to put some inlay around the edge to hide the end-grain but that didn’t work out. I used white oak and finished it with a couple coats of poly. It will serve my family well. Thanks for looking.

Take care.

Nice colors and grain. What is this rotating upon? I’m thinking of making one for Thanksgiving (ie in short order), and have two scraps of Baltic Birch plywood, nearly equal in size circles. I was going to use one as a top, then the lazy susan hardware then the bottom. However, it looks like you don’t have a bottom. Is you lazy susan hardware sitting on the counter?

I appreciate the comments.

skyboy_psu – There is a bottom to it. It’s simply a piece of 3/4” oak plywood cut to a 9” diameter. I banded the plywood edge with some iron on banding. The two parts are joined together by a 6” lazy susan bearing that I got from a local ACE Hardware store.
