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
A screw
Screw driver Or Screw driver attachment for drill
Drill (with drill bit the size of your screw)
A saw
String
Scissors
(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.
