I have a lot of old cds burned with useless files or obsolets OS. The first I though is to throw them to the trash. But they are so brilliant, so colorful and circular; they have pi number in all their diameter!(Did I say I love pi?). And, at the end of the day I don´t know what to do with them. And that's why I have tons(not really) of cds in my bedroom.
But this situation must end right now. May I can make a cd curtain (wait for it) or this project. Actually, I think I should start with something simple but funny. That's how I though in this: a spinning top.
Have a good time with your colleagues playing spinning top battles or have fun lonely when you are full of work and that's the last you want to do.
Keep reading to have your full recycled CD spinning top.
Step 1: The Stuff
To make this project like a pro you only need:
- CD container
- Paper, cardboard or something to do a pattern
- Knife or Cutter
- Power drill
Step 2: Draw the pattern
Step 3: Make the arrows
Step 4: Cut the slots
Now it's the turn of the CD. Put the CD over something like a tape roll to cut the slots in the center of the disc. Use a power drill beacuse the scissors will only make splinters and break the CD. Remember that it must be two perpendicular slots.
Step 5: Put all together
And thats all!
I hope you enjoy this instructable and have fun with it!
