Here is a lazy Suzan I made with rattan.
The cool thing is you can remove the base
and use it as a tray as well.

Great work(which is expected, seeing your lamps and all!) I always feel like there's just not enough rattan crafting going on, but you proved me wrong with this one. Did you have to steam the rattan, or was it already shaped? Super cool.

Thanks all.

"Did you have to steam the rattan, or was it already shaped"

I did use steam at one time.
But now I just put the rattan in my
hot tub and let it soak over night.
The next day it bends nicely.

Going to try and make more rattan stuff.
It's great to work with.

Hey thanks mp,
That's where the base came from.
I can't wait to see one of my lights ect in the wild for sale.
