It has poured rain here for 3 days...kinda messing up my other plans. I am stuck in the shop. I have a little nephew that I am making Christmas present for as I find time. I already made him a rocking horse and all that. I got thinking what else does a little boy like, Hey a yo yo! I have never made one (haven't even seen one for 25 years) I looked them up on the internet this morning and the old timey ones where made from hard maple...I have that, piece of cake. But that seemed boring, why not make one from curly maple? If I was doing that might as well throw in some maple burl to pretty it up. It was fun and easy to make , I think I will make a couple more.
