Hi all, first time posting here.

I am a novice and setting out to make a lazy Susan (approximately 24” round top). My intent is to do a panel glue up and use a trammel to route the top. The stock I have for the project is some nicely stripped sapele 8” wide and I have 10 lf.

My question relates to the panel for the top. I could use three 8” wide strips, or five (just under) 5” wide strips leaving me stock for the base. Is there a rule of thumb or best practice for more vs fewer boards, a seam through the center, or just what looks best to the eye?

I would go with the 3-8” boards and make the base out of the other 4’ of board you have. 16” base would work great. OH and WELCOME to LJs
