Make a Wood Dreidel

Wood DreidelPaul Germanos has posted a Flickr series depicting a set of dreidels he made from recycled wood. The dreidels are fairly large and made from what looks like an old 4" x 4" douglas fir beam.  He cuts the body to size and carves it subtly to make it less square - then attaches an off-the-shelf handle and a dowels for the spinning tip.  >> See the pictures
