Some pictures of my DIY turntable. I did not built it myself but a friend did it for me (thanks a lot, you know who you are).
Base, tone arm support and motor housing are cut from 30 mm solid aluminum plate. A 10mm acrylic plate is joint to the lower site of the base with epoxy resin to smoothen potential resonances.
