How do you make a spinning chair spin?
Give me a step by step tutorial or redirect me to a different site.

Depending on size of chair and whether whole chair or just seat, you can use a lazy susan bearing which will take a lot of straight down weight and is cheap.
If the chair is to lean back in, then the bearing has to stronger so a replacement swivel chair bearing has to be used. These are also stiffer (don't spin as freely.)
For example, here
You build a chair with strong bottom framing and a leg unit below and bolt the swivel in place between them.
(well, since swivel is not the the URL, search on chair swivel)
the three shown in pictures are extremely standard and available from woodworkers supply places and some hardware stores.
