Defying gravity

I needed to make a turntable to apply a two part resin finish.

It took quite awhile to figure everything out, what turns slow enough, how to make a vertical turntable instead of a horizontal turntable. Why ? anything sitting on a horizontal turntable will allow gravity to draw the thick resin finish downward and just create a puddle of finish on the bottom before the resin sets up.

A vertical turntable ( at the correct speed) will actually pick the drips and runs before they drop off, because of the rotation and continue to have the finish build up layers as it continues to rotate and have the runs and sags re-apply themselves to the finish coat. A slower drying resin works the best as over time rotating it does self level out the surface, and abolishes the sags and runs. A very fun challenge
