I screwed up guys, I thought it would be much easier to do them in groups than this. If you paid for a yoyo please PM me, you will be compensated for the delays!
I will be shipping these as soon as they are smooth as they should be.
Pics tomorrow of about a half dozen different woods!

Here is one style, unfinished. I have to add the center nub still before I can sand and finish it.
This is for myself, the curve to the bearing will be MUCH more gentle on the others.

I'd rather wait until you get them right, than get something that's not as good as you'd want it to be. I know that when it's ready to your satisfaction, it's gonna be one amazing yo-yo.

Raley, I do want both Team Tiki and a Team Chilidog! The Chilidog yo's are going to be the metal yoyo's I will producing later on.
And if anyone is competing at Worlds and thinks they want to prove their stuff with a wood yoyo please PM me. I want to see a wood one up on stage competing with the metals!! I am all about trying to sponsor someone.

Well, I guess I am going to have to call this a fail for now. I cannot get them vibe free...... The closest I got was when I did an axle setup similar to an Oxy to where you could fine tune it. I talked to Carlo about licensing his idea and he was against that. So since then I have tried about eight other axle/bearing setups with inconsistant results.
I can get one decent yo out of every three. If some of you want your money back no problem, I will do that. If some of you want to keep waiting, I am cool with that as well. But it might take up to a few weeks to burn through enough bad to get the good.
I have learned a lot, spent a lot, and cussed a LOT! lol But the biggest thing is that I am not going to give up! I will be making a reliable wood yo, and soon a metal might be rearing it's ugly head as well.
So, I will be PM'ing all parties who have paid for one to get your decision.

when mine comes, I'll do some tinkering w/ different axle set-ups and stuff to try and finds something that works consistently well.

I'm waiting for sure. I have wanted an awesome playing wood yoyo for a long time. I am sure it will be worth the wait.

Today was a better day, got some positive progress. I think I found part of the issue in the process.... this week will prove if it worked or not.
Here is the ebony one I got done today, still needs the nub installed-
