Spin In Style wood spinning tops

Two tops featuring small green Sputnik sea urchin shells

I make wood spinning tops. Starting in August 2017 they were available for sale. I keep an archive of my tops on my Instagram account, under the name @drphilgandini.

Wood tops don’t spin as long as metal tops because they weigh much less, and also because of their size create more wind resistance. And wood tops tend to flutter and wobble compared to metal tops because wood is far less “evenly dense” than metal.
