I saw that video earlier this week and thought it was quite clever. The link in the description is dead but here is how you can contact the guy to see if he will send you the plans. Let us know how it works out for you.

Please correct me if I'm wrong. The five dollar rotary attachment would make it seem that one would not have to perform any calibration for rotation, as the surface of the bed provides the rotation and the travel distance of the laser in the Y direction on the workpiece matches the travel distance of the laser in the Y direction on the machine.

I can see that this would be a wonderful device for workpieces with cylindrical sides, but tapered ones would have a bit trickier go of things. Such a clean simple design, even within the limitations.
