Default recess in Lazy Susan

I need to make a number of Lazy Susan that are 16” in diameter with a 1/8” recess from the middle out to Ό” from the edge, the recess is for a ceramic mosaic. I would like to know the best way to cut this recess, and should it be done before cutting out the 16” top or after. Thanks in advance for the help.

Hi Bob.

When I made mine, I used a circle jig to cut out a 6" insert and also the same jig to cut the
top. For an insert that large, I would use a template, guide bushing and skis....

I agree with James. with a recess that size a template, guide bushing and skis would be your best approach.

I agree, skis would be the best approach If I had a metel lath I would do it my self. I don't no where to begin looking for a source but I'll start looking. I was wondering if I could use hardwood slides in stead of the steel rods. I would still have an X and Y axes though construction would be more complex.

Bob,

I am making a 2nd Lazy Susan , and would love to see the results of your endeavors.

Would it be possible to see a photo. Also , how did you end up making your recess?
