This is a card carousel on 4” lazy Susan bearing. I has four outer trays that hold a total of 8 deck of cards and the center tray is for the discards . We use them to play hand and Foot in the park in Arizona.

The base is 11” in diameter and it is 4 3/4” high overall.

It is made of solid walnut and finished with clear satin lacquer

Cheers, Jim

Here are some shots during the build:

Nice one Jim, no good here as we have to be two arm’s length apart. Nice project, nice wood and finish.
Keep busy and safe.

Thanks you all for the nice comments! I hope we can be close enough in December to use it!

Hi Lew. the base is 2 pieces too…with biscuits too.

Hi Mark, the hole in the base is an access hole to assemble it. The bearing is mounted to the base and it is flipped over and put on the top piece and you can put the screws into the top section through that hole. The underside of the top section is relieved .200” to reduce the gap when it is assembled. That relief also make it easy to align the holes.

Cheers, Jim

Thanks Dave and John!! This one should work better than the first three. They had 3/32” clearance for the cards and this one has 1/4”.

Cheers, Jim
