Small Brown Tone Tumbling Block Lazy Susan
The Small Brown Tone “Tumbling Block” Lazy Susan is based on the “Tumbling Block” quilt pattern. It measures 12” across (13 ½” tip to tip) and 2” high. There are 312 pieces on the overlay. The pieces are cut and glued in place, one piece at a time. The pattern covers the top and extends over the edge uninterrupted, to within ¼” of the table top it sits on. The stationary base is hidden on the inside, behind the edge.
The pattern has the illusion of a lot of blocks but there are as many stars as there are blocks. The design forces you to see the blocks. On each diamond, if you go to the side you are in the middle of a block. At each point you are in the middle of a star that has 6 points.
This lazy susan is made from “Hackberry, Oak, and Walnut, all native to Missouri.
On the bottom, I signed it, listed the wood, and dated it. After the date the words “Foot Cut” let you know I made it on a foot powered table saw.
