Not quite as easy as it might seem.

The base holds a powerful ring magnet a microwave may give you one.

The top is a neodymium magnet with a spindle and several weights in non-magnetic materials - Plastics and brass to balance and weigh down the top to a stable position this is effected by temperature

The base has 3 legs which are adjustable to level the base to get the magnetic field truly horizontal.

that's all.
