free plans: how to make a|
|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.|
Using the bandsaw, scrollsaw or jigsaw, trim the wood near the circle; there is no need to try to get extremely close to the line unless you are confident with your sawing abilities. If you are using a jigsaw, note that the blade can have a tendency to bend and wander when you are cutting radiuses, so make sure that the blade doesn't encroach into the wood that will become the yo-yo.
