      The chips shown below were captured with my scanner, and it's a pretty good one.  As you can see, some of the color differences are quite subtle. Due to the variances in computer monitors and the various settings to brightness and contrast that users may adjust their monitors to, I cannot guarantee that the color on your monitor is exactly as it appears in the physical world. As a service, I am offering these chips as a set of samples that you can order. These are high quality samples in that all these colors are on real Cherrywood. This is by far the best way to assure you of as close a match as possible  with your existing furniture.  So, if color is critical,  please consider ordering this swatch.

     At this point in time,  I don’t have examples in the Cherry Wood to show you. Until such time, I will use the Oak for demonstration purposes. Thanks for your patience.

      What we have here is what I call the Starburst Lazy susans. The reason for starburst is because of the way the susan is constructed. You’ll notice that the grain patterns radiate out from the centre in all directions. This is very different from the regular design where the grain goes all in one direction. Since we can’t use standard sanding techniques, you may appreciate that it’s also quite labor intensive to manufacture.
     

      Shown below is a susan with some wood inlays.  Exotic woods have been selected.  These inlays are optional, since not everyone likes them. A clear coat finish was applied  showing the natural color of the oak.

     Here is a closeup of the optional  inlaid woods. If ordered, your susan can have three stripes just like these, or any pattern or type of wood that you may care for.  The particular woods used here grow in a couple different parts of the world. The one on the left is a purple color. It’s called Purple Heart and comes from South America. The black one in the middle is called Wenge and comes from Africa. The Orange one goes by the name of Padauk, and also comes from Africa.

     The Starburst  susans utilize an expensive ball bearing swivel base made from extruded aluminum. It is 30 inches in diameter. I leave about a 18 inch center hole open for some interesting possibilities. You can have it open in order to let your tabletop or tablecloth show through from underneath. Another idea is a nice floral arrangement in the center. The susan will spin around it. If you choose this, the inside edge will be nicely rounded. The other option is a piece of inset glass.  This glass is 3/8  inch thick.  With the glass insert your center arrangements will now turn  with the unit.

Here we have an image of the 30 inch Premium Base that I use for these very special susans. The base is valued at well over $400 and is  included in the price of the susan.

      I am often asked “What size lazy susan would be good for my table?”  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 pattern out of cardboard or newspaper of the same diameter of susan you are considering. 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.
