This is an unique way to make a spinning top from a flat braid with taking advantage of kentai technique.
Step 1: Tools & Materials
Step 2: Wood Stem
1.Sharpen the wood dowel in the pencil sharpener.
2.Round off the tip of the dowel with sandpaper.
If you have an electric drill, it's much easier to make round the tip. In this case, I used the wood dowel, but it could be substitute for a pencil, a crayon, and so on.
Step 3: Roll Up Flat Braid
Roll up the flat braid around the dowel with using instant glue.
Step 4: Transformable Spinning Top
You can transform the shape of the spinning top with using hand by pushing and sliding the braid coil. Please check my YouTube video.
Step 5: String Spinning Top
It could be used as the string spinning top by transforming.
