100% handmade, one-of-a-kind, new and never played with. This yo-yo is a variation of the classic imperial shape, and is made from a single block of beautiful and distinctly figured South American Canary wood. The red mineral streaks in this wood are striking, and make the finished piece look a lot like much more expensive and rare Tulipwood. No glue is used to hold the sides and axle together...it's all one piece, a YoYoSpin design trademark.
Perfectly balanced, and with excellent "hand-feel", this lathe-turned work of art measures about 2.30" x 1.45" and weighs 61 grams (2.15 ounces) with string. Red silicone rubber rings inlaid into each side of the yoyo help absorb accidental 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.
