    Here is a photo of the old design lazy susans I was making last year.

    I did sell a lot of them but was never quite happy with the look since it looked like something out of a high school wood shop. So I changed the design.

    This is the new design. Rather than using face grain wood I used quarter sawn and made it so the grain pattern continued through to the other side.


    BIG question. Which design is the most pleasing to you guys? My reason for asking will be revealed a little later.

    By far the new one. A lot more character.

    I guess I'm alone in liking the old one. I like the look of the grain in the first. To me the new one looks like something my wife would bring home from Target. Probably more the color than the style.

    The new one, the first one looks like something n a department store could sell, the second looks uber cool and has a personal touch to it...

    I like the new one. Definitely more interesting. But I'll hold off until you make some for the burl slabs It's a Burl is going to start offering

    The new one looks nicer. I don't really like the color, though.
