Thanks to the many LJ’s that posted their work and showed me the way to do this stuff. Much appreciated. An extra big thanks to degoose (spelling?) for his tremendously detailed project diaries. This is a gift to my wife, so she thanks you also.

Since it was my first stab at a weave project I didn’t use any of my “good” wood. The weave strips are cheap…poplar, i think. The edge strips are purpleheart. The background squares are leftover from another project, I think it was tigerwood or something. I forget because the wood for the project was provided by the person who asked for the project (a slab lazy susan).

Very nice…any more pictures of it ? What finish did you use ? What type of bearing is it riding on ? Did you use the same pattern for the base ?

nothing special on the finish and hardware, the bearing is just a large lazy suzan bearing (maybe 10-12 inch diameter) i found in home depot for about $8, the base is just baltic birch, and the finish is several coats for minwax poly satin. It’s going on our table and will get a lot of abuse, so it’s built from pretty basic materials.

Adherence to continuity of grain pattern takes this up a notch.,.

Very attractive and nicely crafted. I like the wood combinations too.

Well done.
I like it a lot. Really tight corners and the grain is all good.

Good job,
Steve

Can someone post a link to the project diaries you reference. I’d like to try something with a weave. That looks cool. Nice job.
