This was a fun project. I am really liking the segmented work. This piece has 73 pieces in it made of walnut and maple. Thanks for looking.

Your top is a real winner. How big is it? Is the finish friction polish? I can’t imagine how long it took to glue up the blank. Do you sell them? Do you get your money’s worth with these?

Wonderful job on the top. An heirloom toy for sure.

That is stunning.

I’d love to see a short video of that thing in-motion. I bet it’s mesmerizing!

Great show!

I am glad to see there are those who can do this work. I am patient but not that patient.

Terry—The top is 2.25” diameter and 2” Tall, I used a friction polish. I have not sold any tops yet. Anyone sell tops willing to tell us what you get for yours?

Jonathan—Whe the top spins it looks like a beige top spinning with 4 faint circle lines. I suppose with a strobe light the checkering would show up.

Thanks for looking.
