Twins in Light: Wooden Tops

twins: wooden tops with red tissue paper in the sunlightThese wooden tops were made by Alan Gray, a mechanical engineer, who enjoys making toys that balance. The package they came in arrived on a sunny spring day. When I opened the box the sunlight from outside my front door and window made a nice glow on the red tissue paper and the colored top. So I took a picture.

The top maker's website is at: Wood Tops

Beautiful tops! My Dad turned some wooden tops when I was a kid. we had so much fun seeing who could spin theirs the longest. We wrapped them with a string and spun them. I need to see if he will make some more of those. Great memories!
