Making bottom platform: A circle jig is made for the router to cut a precise groove close to the edge, on top of which the acrylic cylinder will sit. I used a plunge router and a 1/4″ straight bit.

The clear acrylic cylinder will  sit on top of the bottom platform, and encase the spinning sculptures.

A clear acrylic disc is cut into a circle which will fit inside the cylider.

I will be using a gear reduction motor and a control box to get precise speed. The gearbox will also have a much higher torque, making it able to support a lot of weight without the load weight being a huge factor on the speed of the spinning disc.

A custom flange is designed to attach the motor to the spinning disc.
