Making a Spinning Top That Can Somehow Spin Upside Down From a Block Of Wood

Watch as Matthias Wandel spins a block of wood on a lathe in order to make a Tippe top, a spinning top that may flip upside down and still spin.

It’s a pretty fun toy, because while you think the top is about to fall over, it catches itself onto the surface and flips itself in an absolutely new direction and keeps on spinning.
