Large Hard Maple Lazy Susan..................Delivered and Loved

This large Lazy Susan will be used to place condiments and serving plates on for many years to come. It was recently delivered to its new owners and received welcoming raves by them. They were very pleased with the end product.



The top will be a 23 inch diameter circle with a metal mechanism attached to a smaller 13 inch base. This photo shows the top being glued and clamped.



This is the top board with the clamps off and after being cut out using a CNO router.






This is the base which will be attached using the metal bracket below.




Here is the top after being sanded and awaiting the first coats of poly. Polyurethane was used to allow it to be cleaned in case food was spilled on it while being used.




This is a 12 inch metal fitting to allow the top to turn. It has stainless steel ball bearings inside a sealed unit. It must first be attached to the base and then two holes were drilled to allow access to screw positions on the top part.





This is a side view that shows the height of it and the metal bracket between the two.






And here is the final product with it polyed surface.

This was picked up by the client and they loved the fact that a need was met. They had looked everywhere for a lazy susan this large and had been unable to find one this size until meeting me at a local Arts show.
I am sure this will grace the table of many family/friends gatherings and will serve them well for years to come.
