Wood is Paraíso (Melia azedarach). Finish with boiled linseed oil and beeswax.
I dont use a lathe (because I havent), only a hole saw!!!
I hope like you. Greetings.

Regalo para mi papá, en su 57º cumpleaños. Para el niño que lleva dentro…
Madera de Paraíso (Melia azedarach). Terminado con aceite de lino precocido y cera de avejas.
No usé un torno (porque no tengo), sólo una mecha copa!!!

Espero que les guste. Saludos.

Cool but not sure what it is, I think I know but ,,,,, Does the top spin off? Sorry for being in the dark on this one.

The idea of this gift is for the child that sleep in his father memory. A toy top of yesteryear and memories gone by, but his father will get even more happiness from a son thoughtful gift. Well done Marpintero and may your son have the same caring heart….BC

A wonderful top! I don’t have grandkids, but I wouldn’t mind making one for myself!

I’m sure you’re Dad will love it.

When I first saw the picture, I thought you had made a pull-string angle grinder :-)

Cheers,
