Welcome to my website.  Following the demise of gandini.unm.edu, which I had hosted for over 10 years, I launched this website in 2013. It has a new host, a new look, and a new domain name (philipganderton.com.)
Here you’ll find an academic section with details on my classes, and my research. Currently I am Senior Associate Dean and Associate Dean for Faculty in the College of Arts and Sciences, but I still teach courses for the Economics Department. There’s also a section about the consulting and expert witness services I offer.
I post occasionally to a blog called Ramblings.  Then there are my personal pages, that let me share a little of myself.  You can read about my obsession with my car, bicycles, photography, woodwork and a few other things.  My photography site has been around the web the longest, and doesn’t get the attention it deserves, I’m afraid.
I hope you find something of interest here. If you do, please comment via the Facebook and Twitter sharing links–or not. Thanks for visiting, and cheers!

An old thing, new to me

Spinning tops have been around for thousands of years, and wooden spinning tops are pretty standard fare among children’s toys, even today.
This week I started selling the wood spinning tops I’ve been making. Having bought a wood lathe and been making spin bowls, I didn’t think I would want to make tops, but now that’s all I want to make! And it’s been a blast. The top shown below is a hybrid of wood dowels, poplar and oak, set in a black acrylic resin. I call it my flower top.
