Wooden Dreidels

Here is a sampling of wood dreidels available for online purchase.  Wood dreidels are made using a variety of techniques:  some are turned on a lathe, some have laser cut parts, and most are assembled from multiple pieces because its easier and less expensive to create a dreidel that way.  I've tried to note the artisan/designer when possible.
