This Lazy Susan is finished in its natural color with 8 or 10 coats of varnish on the top. Then the sides were sanded and 5 or 6 coats of wiping varnish were rubbed in by hand. After the top had hardened for at least a month, I level it and buff it to a high shine. This does give the top a more amber look than the sides but gives the top a “glass smooth” feel.
The pattern has the illusion of a lot of blocks but there are as many stars as there are blocks. The design forces you to see the blocks. On each diamond, if you go to the side you are in the middle of a block. At each point you are in the middle of a star that has 6 points.
This lazy susan is made from “Walnut” from Missouri. The grain going in different directions, all uniform, makes the design in this lazy susan.
This lazy susan is # 87 and was made in 2001. On the bottom, I signed it, listed the wood, and dated it. After the date the words “Foot Cut” let you know I made it on a foot powered table saw.
The steel ball bearings let it rotate at a touch of a finger.
