I decided to try my hand at making a yo yo for my nephew, who back in is youth loved his yo yo. I came up with this custom French Goat Toys yo yo.

It is made with some cherry I had sitting around and stained with his favorite color.

And best of all, it actually works.

The cherry worked well. I don’t have a lathe, so nothing fancy about it. I cut some circles and routers the edge. I used a 1/4 dowel for axle. I was surprised how well it works once I got the gap correct. I might have more time in researching the gap and buying string then I do in the actual build.

The inside is just like the outside. I use an 1/8 round-over bit and set it a bit high. I then sanded, round-over, the new edge the high set bit made.
