This simple project came out well in the end, but not without trials and tribulations. I was well on the way to my 20” lazy susan project ending up as a few very pretty toothpicks. The band saw circle jig was slipping…I was making spirals, not a circle. When I started over, my original plan of having a single wider andiroba stripe was re-purposed from necessity to a 2 striper. I made a ultra simple nail-and-stick jig and used a table router to cut both circles and soften the edge. I used the Triangle 12” flat lazy susan unit (from Woodcraft…smooth but fairly noisy bearings), and made the base out of 1/2” sanded pine plywood. With a 2” smaller diameter base the top is easy to turn while the base is quite invisible. Finish is Minwax wipe on clear polyurethane. And most importantly…the garden window and orchids are my wife’s!!!
