Hi,this is my first and the only instructable so far. Sorry for my bad comunication skills nad English :) So always follow the pictures. You may ask all of your queries in your mind in any way. Here are the materials I used for a simple Arc Reactor.

- A CD container
- 10 meters copper wire
- Aluminum foil
- Paper
- 11 LEDs
- A Roller bearing (you don't have to use it if you can't find) 
- 2 x 1.5V battery
- Black cardboard
- Copper plane
- Solder
- Glue

Step 1:

1) At the first step, I  drew the shape of reactor on a paper and cut out it from CD container.I can't give measurements of the drawing because it depends on your CD container. 

2) Then cut 1 metre copper wire for each of the branches on the reactor and wind them. You will understand it better at the picture.

3) Cut a black circle from a black paper(or something else) for the inside circle.

4) Cut aluminium foil like a circle for the outer circle.
Where can I find all these things
Basicly, the LEDs,copper wire,copper plane and batteries can be provide from any electrical material seller. You can find roller bearing from mechanics. Remainings are general things(glue,paper etc.)
