Default 18" Walnut Lazy Susan

Started yesterday with some cutoff pieces of Walnut, finished it today, shipping it to NY on Monday. Finished in Nitrocellulose lacquer.

I’ve offered to make one of these for a few friends but doubt they understand its purpose. Nice simple day project - well done!

Do you have a favorite vendor for the mechanicals?

Well done. What was the finish?

To echo Brian's query re the mechanicals, those look to be far superior to lost I see on the shelf. Appreciate the details.

Looks good, David. Is that an optical illusion of the ring being off center,or just not attached? It has been a long time since I have seen one that sets out on the open, most corner kitchen cabinets have those, but they aren't as nice as that one.

Looks like a pretty wide angle focal length was used to take that photo - we’ll need a straight on, straight down shot to determine his accuracy. Seriously, where did you get the ‘Susan’?!

Thanks, Guys! I use the TamBee bearings from Amazon. And yes, they are far superior to the stamped steel models. They cost more but they're worth it to end up with a quality product.

I just used my iPhone to take the photo and was kind of close, so yes, it's a bit skewed but it is perfectly centered. If it's not then my CNC has some questions to answer!

Wait... the glue is supposed to be dry??? Sheesh, now you tell me, John!

Yes, TB III and I gave it 6 hours yesterday before flattening one side on the CNC, then to the drum sander to do both sides, then let it stand on edge overnight. By the time I did the recess for the bearing and cut the outer perimeter today it had been 24 hours since I glued the pieces together.

I ordered a couple 9“ assemblies from a Woodworker’s Express website for $18 shipped. Will see how they work out. Look decent...
