With my yoyo and spin top collection growing, I decided to design a custom rack for them. I wanted something a bit on the classy side (ya right, to match my arcade machines), so I fashioned it from hardwoods with a nice coat of stain and varnish. The racks alone hold about 36 good-sized yoyos. The base and top can be used as shelves, and there are brass hooks for strings and tools and rubber feet to protect surfaces (I think I can make a wall-mounted model too). I’m actually thinking of redesigning it later with some small drawers for parts when I have the time. This is a mediocre photo, I’ll try to post a better one later.
Very nice! I like it because you’ve made it yourself so it’s something you can really take pride in!
What’s that giant top? lol I’d like to see that thing in action!
Thanks! Yep, that’s a Watt’s wooden top. I repainted the bottom half (left the top half yellow with his signature). I’m not too good with it yet, but working on it. I can at least land it a portion of the time without braining myself!
