Old Fashion Top

Here is another fun and quick project for your lathe and can be completed in a couple of hours. I started out with a 1 1/2" mesquite turning square 9 to 10 inches long. Drill a 1" and a 3/4" hole at one end. Turn, sand and finish to the desired shape. The spinning part can also be turned, sanded and finished between centers. The top spins remarkable well spinning up to 3 and 4 minutes. gb

Too nice for a kid LOL!
That heavy mesquite is keeps it going almost forever. I also have not even seen a top for many years. If it ain't electronic, the kids won't touch it!

Thanks for the comments. I've made some that I used a sharpened concrete nail for the point. They would spin well over five minutes. Kids love them and they are durable.
Time for y'all to dust off that lathe!
