I made this for my son’s birthday. He loves beyblades, which are spinning tops that battle each other to see which one spins the longest.
The top is made of maple and padauk with a maple obelisk for a handle and maple studs in a spiral pattern to give the feel of a spinning top.
The sides are made from walnut with padauk miter keys and a cedar bottom.
The interior “tray” is laminated walnut and purpleheart with a maple obelisk as a handle. The holes will hold four beyblades and the storage compartment underneath are for spare parts.
I beveled the sides at a 7 degree angle which gives the whole box a spinning top feel. I am extremely happy with this one and can hardly wait the 6 days until his birthday.
Thanks for taking a look.
