Crazy for tops.
Keeps an idle mind generating new neural connections.
I have to make better blanks to make better tops.
Best book on spinning tops is by Michael Cullen
Best article on finger tops is by Nick Cook in The Woodworkers Journal issue May/June 1992.
Have fun.

Very nice work. I’ll have to check out the book and the article myself. Thanks for the references.

Are you using ant thing special for the tip of the top, that would make a tip top—top

Thanks all.
When a project comes apart, I still think I’m a hack.
