Lazy Susan

A good friend of my wife ask me if I could make her a lazy susan with this piece of her Corin counter top as the center. She showed me a picture of one with a round piece of granite in the middle, I told that I had no way to cut into a round piece but I think I could make it into an octagon shape. So I borrowed a tile cutting saw from a friend and this is what I came up with. The wood is from a 2” thick white oak board that was used for a loading ramp my brother-n-law used for years to load a tractor with. He was going to trash it, so I confiscated it. I think this looks a lot better that a loading ramp.

corian? you can cut that with a tablesaw you know. This wont have an adverse effect on your blades either. Its also even better to work with a router. I think someone posted here how to cut circles with a router safely. Just for you future reference. If your not sure search it here first then goto plan B if you don’t find what your’re looking for.

Other than me talking junk this is a great lazy suzan. I actually think it has more character as an octogon. Its cool to see two shapes shared on one piece. The contrast of the two materials makes the corian Pop. Nice job I bet shes happy with that! The miters look great! Nice Lazy suzan.

Thanks getneds, I think her daughter is wanting me to make her one from a piece of her corian countertop. I may put an old blade on my table saw and try a small piece of it.

Great looking piece.
FYI corian is a brand name. There are dozens of companies that make what is known in the cabinet trade as solid surface material. It won’t damage your blades or router bits (assuming you use carbide tipped blades) anymore than a tough piece of oak. Cutting it and especially routing it will produce enormous amounts of dust however. You’ll want to were a good dust mask.
