Spinning tops have been a go to toy for decades. Using centrifugal force to generate spin allowing them to spin for extended periods of time. These tops are as much art as they are a toy created from pieces of live edge burl cast in transparent dyed resin. The onion shape gives them a low center of gravity allowing them to spin easier.
