In this video I’ll show you how I made a DIY wooden fidget spinner toy. Fidget toys like this have become really popular recently and I have to admit they are weirdly addictive to play with.
I wanted to make a hand spinner for myself so I decided to use some scrap walnut, recycled skateboard bearings and some kirinite to make this one and guess what? It freakin’ glows in the dark!
Tools & Materials
I’ve detailed to whole process for making a wooden fidget spinner in this video and I’ve included Ebay links to tools and materials that I used to make it. You can support my channel by clicking through those links and making a purchase as I am a member of the Ebay partner network. It will not effect the price you pay in any way, it just helps me to keep making videos!
The Finished Fidget Spinner
I’m really happy with the way this spinner toy, I know I made a few mistakes but that’s part of it’s appeal! I mean this was not made by a CNC machine or a 3d printer, it was made by a real, fallable human being (and that’s me!). All in all it’s a fun and tactile toy that will serve it’s purpose well (warts and all!).
What did you think of the finished product? The fidget spinner toy thingy was a good challenge especially getting a tight friction fit on those bearings, but I won’t leave the house without it haha.
If you make one of your own then please tag me @Zebranowoodcraft on Instagram of Facebook as I would love to see your work!
