    Yes, I have seen these. It looks like a fun project.

    You should try to turn a Kendama. They are really fun and I havent seen any videos on how to turn them.. Kendamas are almost the same as a Ball & Cup, but ,in my opinion, are way more fun. They have three cups and one spike with a ball connected by string. The ball can land on the spike because they have a hole drilled into them.(about half way)..

    Sincerely – Ben

    i think you shouldve made the hole for the ball a little deeper

  7. haydenHD says:

    Yes I think so too,

  8. QueenOfArchers says:

    This is a toy that goes back to medieval times. Great fun. But I think the cup needs to be a little bit deeper ;)

    Hi Diane,
    I Finish most of my projects with paste wax. I start sanding with 150 or 180 and go all the way to 600.

    I really enjoy and learn a lot from your videos. Can you tell me what you are using to finish your work? Is it was ? Is that sandpaper, and what grit? Is just that one pass enough to remove any tool marks??

  11. haydenHD says:

    Thank you,

    the was so cool how u made that. i wish i could make that but i bet i cant be as good as u.

  13. haydenHD says:

    Thank you. You are right. My kids have enjoyed playing with it.

    Thanks for the video. Its always nice to learn about new turning projects for kids’ toys. This is the kind of thing children for many generations used to enjoy prior to the age of video games.

    haha i made one out of origami. i made an origami balloon, then i made an origami cup, attached them with string, and done!

  16. haydenHD says:

    Dan, Yes I think your right. This was my first one and
    I did see some online after I made it like you our describing.


  17. mersyturning says:

    i do agree with you though that it should have been cupped out a bit more, what i do is make the hole deep but the diameter of the hole just less than the diameter of the ball, thanks Carl,

  18. Upcountryturner says:

    Man i had forgotten just how much i uswed to enjoy that liottle toy. Going to go make sonme tomorrow for my grand kids, many thanks

  19. haydenHD says:

    Yes, the old toys are still the best toys. My kids are enjoying the one I made as well.


  20. haydenHD says:

    No this is the first one for me. Thanks for the idea.


  21. haydenHD says:

    My mother- in-law got my kids one and it looked like this. I did see one with a much deeper cup online. Are the tearouts bad and what type of wood is it? Maple is very hard and seems to cut much better than a lot of woods.


  22. bwolfe5555 says:

    Hey Carl, Interesting spin on that project. I think that’s the first one I’ve seen done with a large ball and a shallow cup. Definately more challenging to the user. Another great video. Noticed that you cut uphill and downhill with the gouge, if I try cutting uphill it always ends up with tearout and a poor finish off the tool. Any thoughts?

  23. mersyturning says:

    thanks for making this, had you made one of these before it was suggested
    great vid

  24. baconsoda says:

    I made one of those a few years ago and, like yourself, was having a wee play when I had finished it. My (then) 19 year old daughter walked into the shop and I haven’t seen it since… but I’ve made a lot for her friends too. The old toys are still the best.
    Best Wishes, Brendan.
