I made myself a Lazy Susan (turntable) with a veneered chessboard on the surface. It is great for board games and serving food.

The end result

I used a variety of tools at the Makerspace to complete this project. This was the first time I have used veneer in a pattern on a surface.

The top and bottom pieces of wood were roughly cut into circles. Then made round and channels added using a router. Dividers were made on a scroll saw and holes drilled for marbles. A bolt holds the top and bottom together. Veneers were cut into squares and the edges sanded before applying them to the top. More veneer was added to the top before sanding it flat. After a few repairs to the top surface the turntable was varnished and felt feet were applied to the bottom.
