Wheel of Fortune

You may wonder why I put a picture of Karen decorating the wedding cake, but you will see that she donated that turntable to a project we were planning. One of our renters is sales manager for a call center and needed a "Wheel of Forture" to use in training and motivation for prizes.
First I painted it white.
Then we mounted it on repurposed shelf brackets.
To support it for her desk height, we mounted it on a wooden tabletop after we shortened the legs.
Frank cutting a slot to hold the flipper.
We used monocoat for the red center and red pinstripe (both from Frank's RC supplies ) to mark the divisions on the wheel.
Finished wheel with pegs and flipper. Marcella told us it was a big hit and all departments want to use it.

that is so cool!! what did you use as the "flipper"?

The flipper was a short piece of strapping for some package.Just firm and flexible enough to do the trick.
