Show some wooden yoyos you've made


#41

I made these two today out of zebrano.

The butterfly shaped is:

Diameter: 56.5mm
Width: 33mm
Gap width: 2.35
Weight: 52g

The H/inverse shaped is:

Diameter: 56.5mm
Width: 33mm
Gap width: 2.35
Weight: 47g

^ Very nice! Which shape do you like better, or do you know yet?


#43

Both have their own feel, but I think I prefer the H/inverse.

They are both great players but I think that ine is extra nice.


#44

I’m thinking of maybe selling a couple of the yoyos I’ve made on the BST. Maybe. Because at this rate, I won’t be able to keep funding the use of these really nice woods. Lol!


#45

Both look great!


#46

I’ve got an older TMBR similar to that “H” shape you made. Can’t remember what Colin called that one. His had a much lower wall, you can go through many modern tricks with that yoyo. Sometimes you even have to bind to get it to come back :smiley:

#48

Beveled off the edges of my inverse/H model. It’s more comfortable now

If anybody is interested, it’s in my BST.

This is made from Tasmanian Oak:

Hey Glenacius K, I really like the looks of your homemade woods. Do they throw as good as they look?


#51

Those look great! What’s in the center of that last one? sequins or something?


#52

They perform really well and have a good play feel. There isn’t a trick I’ve tried that they can’t handle. I test them with variety of fixed axle tricks like stalls, flips, shoot the moons etc. Stop ‘n’ go is an important one for me. I won’t bother much with a yoyo unless it can easily perfom a minimum of three trapeze stop ‘n’ gos consecutively. Most important of all, I check them for sleep and return consistency, they need to sleep and stay that way easily during tricks but also return readily when you want it to.


#53

Yeah, they’re sequins :).

This model needs a bit of tweaking, at 38g I’m finding it’s a little too light and the centre decoration needs a bit of tweaking also.

Next batch I make will spot on!


#54

Impressive!

Seeing yours I think mine sucks :frowning:


#58

I thought yours were kinda cool! Loved the tree engraved one.


#59

Nice work! Do you use a router to bevel the edges or do you turn them on a lathe?


#60

I use a router.
