using patterned plywood
Make your own lazy Susan and learn how to make it food safe!
Plywood sheet or scraps
STEP 1 Cut the strips of plywood
I cut mine to 1-1/8" because I wanted them to end up being 1"
STEP 2 Glue it Up
Apply glue generously across the plywood strips. I like using a silicone brush to spread it all out. Clamp to dry.
STEP 3 Cut into angled strips
As you make the cuts, keep them all in the same order. This is important to get the correct continuous chevron pattern.
Step 4 arrange the chevron and glue it up
Once all the cuts are laid out in the original order they were cut, creating a chevron pattern is simply flipping every other strip.
Step 5 Cut a circle
There are many ways to cut a circle out of wood. You can use a jigsaw or a router and a circle jig.
Step 6 Apply Finish
I wanted it to be food contact safe and seal the plywood so I went ahead and poured a layer of clear epoxy.
