Great looking boards. Smart choice of woods and pattern designs. Outstanding.

Kody, the lazy susan is almost 20 inches wide with a 12 inch bearing and a 16 inch wide baltic birch ply base.

it’s made of purpleheart, maple, and cherry. Finished with some clear gloss poly for a tough finish to take a beating.

How do you go about clamping those angles? Seems to me they’d just slide right apart, is there a dowel or biscuit in there?

Russell, no dowel or biscuit. on the angled boards that want to slide i just use a caul on the sides that keeps them from sliding apart.
