    As for an instructable, I had to re-read it a 2nd time to understand what was going on. I love that it is simple and cheap, which provides the high value/cost factor. Since budget is paramount here, I suggest make a 5th circle and just tape a lid from a can of tuna or cat food under that paper. Where would Neil Peart be without high hats or crash cymbal?
