So for the last week (seriously, a solid week) I've been trying to make wooden yoyos and have been mucking it up like a boorish buffoon. BUT FINALLY THERE IS THE SCENT OF SWEET SUCCESS IN THE AIR. But.. not without the bitter stink of much idiocy did this deed come about. I found that a holesaw is a decent way of making yoyos, with the caveat that you have to make sure that the wood is already the thickness you want each half to be. Sawing the yoyo in half after it is round IS NOT THE WAY TO GO. I made a bunch out of birtch plywood after this video and they work well, too. I would say that they are a bit better because they are heavier.. but they look much less nice and aren't as pleasant to the touch. If I had some spare hardwood scraps, I'd probably use those.. Things that I'd like to try: 1. Checkerboard pattern. I think that all the cool stuff that people do for chopping blocks can be applied here. 2. A huge yoyo. Seriously. That'd be so much fun.
