Once again, my inspiration comes from a woman at work named Liz. This time she requested a lazy susan for her large dining room table. Measures 16” in diameter and made from (center on out): yellowheart, paduk, maple, walnut, paduk, purpleheart, maple.
Lessons learned: I had to get creative with cutting the circle. I started out on the bandsaw, but it was not powerful enough to cut a circle with a jig. I moved over to the router table and cut the circle by putting half of a 1/4” dowel in the center of the wood and the other half in some scrap pegboard material clamped to the table. I think if I needed to repeat this for more than a few, I would make this jig out of plywood as the pegboard hole started getting loose towards the end.
I’m not sure Liz thought the name was quite as funny as I did, but I’m keeping it :)
Thanks for looking!
