Step 1: Start With a Dry Banch and a Piece of Acrylic Glass
Saw of three slices from the banch and two rectangular pieces acrylic glass. Stack all parts together and mark the edge on the acrylic glass pieces. Saw the acrylic parts stack it again and drill a big center hole and smaler holes for screws right and left. Then screw everything together and grind the outside.
Step 2: Baseplate and Battery Compartment

Grind the edge and check if the batteries and switch fits. Drill small holes to screw the base to the upper part and wide the holes with a sinker drill. Screw both parts together with small screws.
