One Hand Turned Spinning Top ‘Argentea Timber’ (Item A 100)

This beautiful dark reddish brown timber is probably Swamp Mahogany from far north Queensland but we have not been able to ascertain this beyond doubt so we named it Argentea after the place where it had been felled. It is a lovely timber for turning and is perfect for a small project like this little spinning top. The stem has a small step at the base and a little knob at the top. The chatter tool was used to make the patterns where silver has been painted top and bottom. They were finished off with high gloss lacquer which brings out the colour.

The top is approximately 50 mm high and the diameter around 40 mm. It is easy to grip between the thumb and first two fingers and will spin for some considerable time bringing fun for little ones and adults alike!
