Here is a spinning top I made. It is maple, purple heart and blood wood. I learned a lot on the first one, but it works. Here is a video of it in action.

Hi Marc. Nice combination of wood in your top. I made one according to the plans with the hardware and it was too small in diameter and very hard to get to spin. I made another one about the shape you have and it works good and the string rewinds right away. I think they would be even better with about an inch bigger diamerter and most of the mass on the outter edge. I’ll make another one when we get to Casa Grade,Az in a few weeks.

The video on Facebook would not open.
