I used mdf, made a 5/8” hole in 18 rough mdf discs. then I mounted a 1 1/2” piece of the 5/8” rod in scrap wood and clamped it to my router table and spun it to true up the disc. If I had to do it again (and I just might) I’d try tunring it quick and easy on a lathe. Since now I have a metal lathe with a carriage that moves it will be all the same thickness across its length. Still, mine came out fine and works like a charm, here is the video of it
