The next step in the project was to make a platform which could sit inside the pool, hold the fish, and rotate on wheels. It will have to be nearly four feet across to span the pool. Large MDF sheets were purchased for the platform, but it would not fit inside the car, so smaller pieces were used.

A half-circle was marked on two sheets which were two by four feet. The radius of the circle was intentionally larger than two feet to better fill the pool. The edges will be decorated to make the circle appear larger.

Inexpensive fixed wheels were selected for the bottom of the platform. They needed to be elevated, so blocks of scrap wood were cut and drilled to go between the wheels and platform. We wanted approximately ten inches between the platform and the bottom of the wheels.
