Step 1: Get Your Materials
To make this Yo-Yo you will need...
2 metal Washers
A log the a little less than the thickness of your wrist
Screw driver Or Screw driver attachment for drill
Drill (with drill bit the size of your screw)
(Optional) Super glue
Step 2: Cut Your Log
Cut your log the thickness of your finger.
Step 3: Drill the Holes
Drill a hole in the center of each log piece you cut
Step 4: Put the Screw Through It
Put the super glue in the hole and screw the screw all the way through one of the log pieces. Then put super glue in the other hole and screw that log piece on until the screw come out the other side about a milimeter.
Step 5: Tie the String
Measure the string from your hip to the ground and add 4 inches. Tie a loop o. each side of the string. Make a slip knot on one of the side by making a loop without tying it and putting it through the loop that you did tie. Put that in your Yo-Yo and pull so it is tight around the screw in the middle.
Step 6: Add Weight
Super glue a washer around the end of each screw on the outside of the
Yo-Yo. This adds weight to make it go better and it makes it look cool.
Step 7: (Optional) Saw Dust and Super Glue
Put a pool of super glue in each washer and then sprinkle saw dust on it so you don't see the screws. That's it! Enjoy your new Yo-Yo.
