My dad reintroduced my kids and I to a toy he had had when he was a boy.  It has a few names: sawmill, buzzer, and whirligig to name a few.   It is usually made with a big button and a string.  The string is looped through the button and you can make the button spin at the center of the wound up string.  I thought this would make a good woodturning project.
