First 3 pics are of the latest (2.0) top. Maple body and handle with a brass rod insert at the tip for smoother spinning. Also made a quickie handle for spinning it with a string. The brass tip is a noticeable improvement.

Last 2 pics are mahogany and maple, same style as the previous project post.

I really enjoy these because it’s almost all shaping, very little roughing, very little waste, uses pieces of wood that are useless for almost any other project, and it’s a fun toy during idle moments.

Pretty cool Rick. I remember a lot of top spinning when we where young.
