Ball Bearing Spinning Top

Great For Kids (Big and Little)!




This ball bearing spinning top provides tech-free fun for kids big and little.  Unplug those phone chargers and put away those tablets.  Just wind the string around the post, hold the ring with one hand and pull the string with the other, and set the top down on a flat surface.  The top behaves like a gyroscope due to the ball bearing design at the base.

Ted turned this top from walnut and SpectraPly (formed from pigmented layers of birch veneer) and added a layer of Corian at the base.  This material commonly used for countertops adds weight and mass to the top, lowering its center of gravity and increasing its spin time.

Dimensions:  4″ long and 2-3/4″ wide.
