100% handmade and one-of-a-kind. The body of this yo-yo is made from a single block of wood, with no glue holding the sides and axle together. A perfectly balanced interpretation of the classic imperial shape.
Made from dyed and laminated "colorwood", with laminated side caps made from green dyed Ukrainian Lilac wood encased in colored resin. Measures about 2.30" x 1.65" and weighs 67 grams.
Rubber rings inlaid into each side of the yoyo help absorb impacts with the floor. Each side looks the same, as shown in the front, back and side views.
Includes gift bag, clear acrylic display shown in photos, and extra string. For the collector of fine and unusual wooden toys or old school fixed axle yoyo players. This item is not intended for use by children 3 years of age or younger.
The shop will be closed while I go fishing - reopening in early August.
I make things that spin & go round - stuff that nobody else makes - eclectic, unique, interesting and always different is what I strive for. Many of my lathe turnings are made from exotic and hard to find woods, often embellished with Rose Engine turnings, laminations and encapsulations. Enjoy your visit.
