Here we have samples of the Cherry wood lumber. Again, I have selected the very best grade of lumber for this susan. I caution my customers that other woodworkers may use an inferior grade in an attempt to cut costs. Yes this may result in a cheaper piece, but the colors and graining will likely be poor, resulting in an inferior piece of furniture. Cherry wood, in it’s natural color, can be anywhere from almost white to a light pink. A light tan to a pinkish hue is the most desirable. The pinkish tan is what I use to assure these very beautiful grain patterns and an overall even coloring. Another interesting quality of cherry wood is that over time it will darken to a deep red color all by itself. Most folks don’t want to wait that long. Since Cherry wood accepts stains very nicely I have provided a selection of colors for you to choose from. I understand that when you consider one of my lazy susans for your beautiful dining room table, it must be as good a quality as the table it will be displayed on.
Other items you must consider are service and timely shipping. Does it annoy you when you hear your order will be shipped in 6 to 8, maybe even 12 weeks? When you pay top dollar for one of my pieces, you are assured of not only a high quality piece of furniture, you will also recieve top quality service. My commitment to you is that in most circumstances lead time will be limited to two weeks or less from date of order to ship date.
I am often asked “What size susan would be good for my table?” Well, if it’s going to be a decorative susan, then it can be any size you like. However, if it’s to be a functional piece, I like to recommend a minimum of 12 to 14 inches of “plate room” all the way around the susan. A good way to see how this would look is to make yourself a circle pattern out of paper. Click here for an easy way to make one. Then place it on your table and arrange some place settings around it. This will give you a very good idea as to how your susan will fit once you recieve it.
