free plans: how to make a
Yo Yo
Basic Description Here is a great example of the power of doing it yourself. Despite also owning a few high-tech yo-yos, this homemade yo-yo is the one I use most often. The size and shape are all custom fit to my hand. Most importantly, the fact that I made it incorporates a level of satisfaction to yo-yoing that a manufactured yo-yo cannot match. This is a simple and classic project that also makes a great gift, and you won't believe the functionality that you can create.

step:       2                    

We will start by preparing the wood. The desired width is between 1/2" to 5/8" (13 - 16mm), we made ours about 9/16" (14mm). If your wood is thicker you will need to plane it to size. You can use a hand plane or a thickness planer until you have reached the desired thickness. If you are using plywood for the yo-yo discs, you can skip this step.
