Picture of Table Lazy Susan

Table Lazy Susans are a fun and easy shop project that make great gift ideas for friends and family. Since I built my first one a number of years ago, I've gotten a lot of requests to build more.

In this latest version, wavy stripes are added at the request of the recipient which I think add a really nice look to the pieces!

What follows is a detailed video of this build to show you step by step the process I used to get these great looking Table Lazy Susans. As well, there are pictures of each step along the way.

Wow great work! Is there any issue with the stripes causing an offset with the wood lines?

Thanks!

No, leaving them oversized when gluing in the strips gives you a little wiggle room to get everything lined up nicely.
