About: I am a Japanese inventor who is specializing in hairbrushes. I like making things with DIY. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2PggaysnpVM

This is an unique way to make a spinning top from a flat braid with taking advantage of kentai technique.

Step 1: Tools & Materials

・Flat braid

・Wood dowel

・Pencil sharpener

・Instant glue


Step 2: Wood Stem

1.Sharpen the wood dowel in the pencil sharpener.

2.Round off the tip of the dowel with sandpaper.

If you have an electric drill, it's much easier to make round the tip. In this case, I used the wood dowel, but it could be substitute for a pencil, a crayon, and so on.

Step 3: Roll Up Flat Braid

Roll up the flat braid around the dowel with using instant glue.

Step 4: Transformable Spinning Top

You can transform the shape of the spinning top with using hand by pushing and sliding the braid coil. Please check my YouTube video.

Step 5: String Spinning Top

It could be used as the string spinning top by transforming.
