This was a fast and fun project. I was very hesitant on trying to make a yoyo. I had an idea of how I was going to attempt it and then I watched a few videos. I saw a lot of complicated ways of making a yoyo and started second guessing my design.

Luckily my wood turners club was actually doing a virtual demo on making a yoyo. It was just as complicated as many of the previous videos on YouTube. I almost scrapped the idea and then thought, what the heck. Worst case, the video will be entertaining.

Usually after I finish a project, and during the editing process, search for music that represents the area the wood is from or a specific title/lyric that has something to do with the end result. Early on, as I was turning I kept laughing at the way I was saying Yo-Yo… Yo Yo YO! LOL

It was apparent I was going to look for some old school hip-hop rap combo and just couldn’t find anything. You know the end result, but it was funny thinking I could “attempt” to even conceive something remotely resembling rap. Then again… it might be hilarious to hear me try. So now you know.

Fun project, highly recommend.

Here is this week’s video: On-piece YoYo from Etimoe
