Lazy Susan

To the Susans of the world, I'm sorry. I don't think you're lazy, and I didn't name this handy serving piece after you. Some other guy did that.

Who? We have no idea.

What we know is that the first published reference to a "Lazy Susan" was in a 1917 edition of Vanity Fair, where “Ovington’s $8.50 Mahogany ‘Revolving Server or Lazy Susan'” is advertised. The term is probably a 20th century invention, it appears … and they were really, really big in the ’50s & ’60s.

The trends have turned again, naturally, and Lazy Susans are a consistent seller from the Woodshop.

Although I can make other sizes with a special order, all of these Lazy Susans are 17-1/2" wide and sit on a 12" bearing. Felt pads protect your table's finish from the metal bearing.

These Susans are made one at a time in the shop. Every one is different!
