After getting a lathe around Christmas time I think I’m finally starting to get the hang of turning. When you give these things a little push they fall over and then pop right back up, sometimes several times. they are very addictive. My wife says I can’t play with them any more haha.

I’ll bet my grandchildren would have some fun with those. Nice wood variety! Good luck with the new lathe.

They pop back up? How do they do that? Are they weighted on the bottom end?

no weights in them it’s just the shape that makes them work. the dimensions are critical if they are off by more than a centimeter in any direction they won’t work. when I first started making them I had to scrap almost as many as I was able to save

Thanks for sharing, I had not heard of these before. I already looked up dimensions and cant wait to try to make a few.
