Giant spin art – Maker Faire 2011 Vancouver

I wanted to create a very simple project for Maker Faire Vancouver that I could do in a weekend and something that people could take home with them as a memento.

I read about the Giant spin art box in a Make magazine Volume 25. It seemed simple enough and I could spray paint the Maker Faire logo with a stencil.

The build was pretty simple. I found a AC washing machine motor at a local junk yard that had a max speed of 1700 RPM. I created a mount for the motor to sit in so that it wouldn’t shake around too much then attached a flat board to the top of the motor with some screws. The whole process took about 3 hours.

  1. Hello,

    I was wondering if you found out how to make one of the sound strips within the Hallmark cards. There was a post placed by you about the audio cards. Your assistance is greatly appreciated.
