I had a strip of Flame Birch about 1&1/4” wide by 7’ long and 3/4” thick…hhmmmm , what can I possibly make from that ? .....Well , I made this Lazy Susan for your approval after adding a bearing from Woodcraft to the bottom and finishing it with Minwax Wood Sheen Natural.

As of August 11th 2008 , this prized possession of mine became a birthday present for a dear friend that admired it so much and hasn’t stopped talking about it since she first saw it posted here . At least I know it’s in good hands and I can visit it any time that I want to ! hahahahaa…..L O L !!

  • : ) HAPPY BIRTHDAY , Patricia !!! : ) *

This is a nice piece. It is something that you don’t see very often but is very useful, especially on a table.

I like this.

Thanks for the post.

Your Lady Susan really convinced me to try out Minwax Natural Wood Sheen.
It’s in my Nov 2008 PO list.
