This is my “Small Bright Oak” Lazy Susan. The measurements are 12” across (13” tip to tip) and 2” high. This lazy susan has 6 kinds of wood, all the natural colors. There are 304 pieces in the overlay, 80 diamonds and 224 triangles. The type of wood used is listed on the bottom from the center out. On this lazy susan, starting from the center is (1) “Tulipwood” and (2) “Satinwood” from Brazil, (3) “Purpleheart” from Central or South America, (4) “Hackberry” from Missouri, (5) “Wenge” from West Africa, and (6) “Oak” from Missouri.

The pattern is based on the “Lone Star” quilt pattern. The design extends over the edge to within ¼” of the table top it sits on. The stationary base is hidden on the inside, behind the edge.

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 my foot powered table saw.
