The 3D design was a learning project. It measures 11” and is made from Walnut, Cherry and Maple with a Hickory inlay.

I did learn a lot.
1. I need better control when cutting the angles
2. Any error is magnified the further you get from the center
3. Heavy duty rubber bands hurt like heck when they pop

On the next try I will make the individual hexagons smaller.

The larger lazy susan is 16” and made from Walnut and Maple with a Hickory inlay.

I think what you learned is that you’re one heck of a woodworker. Beautiful.

If I could achieve that result with a “Learning” experience, I would be extremely happy.
Congratulations and well done.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
