So maybe I can't catch a fly with chopsticks, but here's an instructable for you to make your own spinning drum, just like the one Miyagi-san gives to Daniel-san in The Karate Kid II. OK, maybe not JUST like it, but pretty close and just as much fun to use.

Step 1: What you will need

1. Cardboard mailing tube, 3" in diameter (not pictured)
2. Manila file folder
3. 1/4" diameter wooden dowel, 12" long
4. 14 inches of cording - I used a shoelace
5. Two beads, approximately 5/8" with a hole big enough for the cording
6. 3/4" wide electrical or vinyl tape
7. Doublestick tape
8. A pushpin
9. A stick ballpoint pen
10. A tape measure
11. A serrated knife
12. Scissors (not pictured)
You should enter this in the <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.instructables.com/id/ENF6KDVF1A4Y0Y8/">Etsy contest</a>!<br/>
Hadn't thought about it but maybe... Thanks, Canida.
