The bottom was sanded flat and what looks like a
series of boxes is actually just one large box made to

four boxes. These were built by making strips that
over lap a central box. Just foward of this is a

The scan head was constructed of a dome made by
Plastruct that is 2 3/4", a spacer approximately 1/2"
tall by 2 3/4" , a disk of acrylic 2 3/4" x 1/8" , a

detangler is used to provide power to the lights
while the dome is spinning:
