OK, you want small turnings? Here are three spinning tops.

Ivory and briar burl:

Snake wood and ivory:

Ivory and briar again, with fishing sinkers to add weight:

Oh, did you say how small? Well, each OD is smaller than 8mm.

And yes, all of them can spin! Quite easily indeed and for 10 or 12 seconds, the problem is to make them spin on such tiny arenas:

Enjoy!

These are really great, Pierre! I really love the use of the live edge pieces to create spinning surfaces for them. Wonderful work!
