I made this top for my kids to play with, I made the stem longer so they could spin it more easily. It spins pretty good but it has a slight wobble. Its made from a 3” turning blank so the diameter is 3” and being made from a rosewood it has some weight to it and when it is spun its a force to be reckoned with. I finished it with shellac seal coat. Thanks for viewing, Andy.
