Wooden Spin Top

Introduction: Wooden Spin Top

About: Come spend some time in the shop. I'm a hobbyist woodworker and professional computer geek in Northern California. I guess my projects will vary widely, and I have no clue what I plan to make next...

Sycamore wood turned into a classic wooden spin top. I thought vintage toys we're suppose to be easy to use?!
