Metal spinning for the toroidal section of the stack would be very doable, especially with a soft metal like copper. The hard part would be figuring how to get the wooden form out, after you are done!

Re: Condensation

John,
I think 2 - 1/2” gauge is a terrific size. Easily moved about, can be displayed in your living room and yet will pull a decent load with ease!

When I try all I get is a link inside the YouTube quotes after pressing the YouTube button.
