Easy CD Top Answered

Make a quick and easy top with a CD (remember those?) and some lamp parts. You can make the design a little nicer by putting a new pattern on top or just see what the CD art is like when it's all a blur.

I was doing this with tiny metal disks from an electric meter I dissected.It was fun,and it even did something weird(spin backwards while it went forward)!

Ahh yes, the Compact disc. Good times, good times. They too will see the day where they share a common status with archaic artifacts of the past, like phonographs and handlebar mustaches. It's a pretty top, however I would prefer to have a double sided holographic type disc, to dance and make rainbows on the ceiling. What happened to the lamp anyway?
