Description

Hand Turned Exotic Wooden Yo-YosLast Friday (and the better part of Saturday) we took a break from the ordinary and made a few Yo-Yos.  All the yo-yos you’ll see here were hand turned from various exotic woods. Most are ball bearing yo-yos which spin forever making them great for doing tricks,  and a few will be fixed axles, which are easy to use, but don’t sleep nearly as well. All yo-yos will come in a laser cut display box.

Bloodwood Yo-Yo

The first one up is an awesome Bloodwood Yo-Yo that spins on a ball bearing shaft making it an easy sleeper. This Yo-Yo was cut in a hollow butterfly style. Bloodwood shimmers and dances as it spins thanks to the woods natural metallic chatoyance.

Coolibah Burl

Cocobolo Solid Butterfly

    This company never ceases to amaze me with their creativity to manage their wood!

      thanks!

    My brother does yoyo competitively and says these look awesome- however, he is curious about some details.
    What is the size of the ball bearing?
    What about the response? Are they all responsive? If so, would it be possible to make a unresponsive version?
    (if you’re not sure what this means, see: http://yoyoexpert.com/learn/029-intermediate-unresponsive.html )
    Could we see a picture of the inside?

    • Charlie Brumfield

      hi luke, these are all responsive. i can make an unresponsive one for you if you like. the bearing is a custom size. i’ll try to post a pic of the bearing and response system shortly.

    I know this was a long time ago but out of curiosity what would it cost to make one for the blood wood butterfly that would use a “size c” bearing with bearing spacers for a seat and a response groove for pads?
