My Parents bought a new dining room table that is square in shape and rather large to accommodate when all the family is there. She asked if I could make a Lazy Susan for her, so I decided to make her one for Christmas.

It’s made of Ipe (top and base), measures 22 1/4” across and has a 12” lazy susan mechanism. I put “no slide” material on the bottom to keep it from sliding across the table when turned. Its finished with 2 coats of high build Polyurethane.

Thanks for looking!

i made a quick jig to attach to my trim router and made several passes, getting deeper each time until i made it all the way through.

Well done. Should be very useful on that big table. I bet that your Mom will love it.

You did a nice job on it and I think she’ll love it.
