Hand turned here in my Colorado shop. 100% handmade, one-of-a-kind, new and never played with. Perfectly balanced yoyo with matching display stand.
The satellite shaped fixed axle yoyo's body is made from a single piece (no glue) of Italian Olive wood, harvested from around the city of Rome. Perfectly balanced, and with excellent "hand-feel", this lathe-turned art yoyo measures about 2.25" x 1.50" and weighs 69 grams (2.43 ounces) with string. Black 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.
The matching display is also made from Olivewood, with Rose Engine turnings and a working red-jeweled aluminum fidget spinner fully integrated into the design. At the base of the display, a one-of-a-kind handmade dichroic glass cabochon, measuring 1.25" across, is embedded into the wood. The display measures 3.25" across at the base and stands 6.25" tall.
Please send me a message if you want to purchase the yoyo ($35.00) or display ($110.00) alone.
For the collector of fine and unusual wooden toys or enthusiastic yoyo players.

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.
