Oak is the wood this company started with. As with most other species, there are several grades. Along with that, there are different species of oak. Examples include Red Oak, Black and White Oak. Different oaks from different areas around the country will add variations to color and graining. We strive to use only Red oak coming from the eastern states. This provideds a consistent color and low mineral content. The minerals are what will cause that dark streaking in the wood.
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 one week 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.
