From an old Irish tree to the maker’s hands, this unique wooden spinning-top is crafted with the utmost love and care. It is a beautiful example of a natural toy that dates back as far as 3500 BC. Each spinner is handcrafted by Furniture Designer-Maker Cian Magill, and displays unique grain details.
After being naturally felled by a storm, timber from Cnoc na Carraigín (a small ancient woodland located close to Cian’s home), is carefully selected for turning.
By purchasing one of these magical creations, you can now complete it’s sacred journey!
Size: roughly 55mm high by 45mm round. Made from a native Irish hardwood, usually Ash or Beech.
* Sale + Free Worldwide Shipping for a Limited time only!*
Gift also includes a Fairtrade, organic-cotton bag, and a beautiful Celtic style info card.
Underneath the display/ spinning dish for the top is engraved with a short message of your choice. Customers usually opt for something like ”Made for X, Happy Birthday 2020, Lots of Love, Y”. But this can be personalised to suit you.
If you have any questions please feel free to send them my way.

‘Turning Wood to Life’
Magill Woodcraft was established in 2014 by Cian Magill, a recent graduate of GMIT Letterfrack. Studying Furniture Design and Manufacture gave Cian an insight into the world of woodcraft, opening a door of endless possibilities.
Amongst some of Cian’s early creations included the true beginning of Magill Woodcraft – a set of classic wood-turned spinning tops, made from locally sourced native Irish hardwoods. This focused the maker on creating a business with a totally unique style.
My aim is to achieve the perfect design and quality craftsmanship, which comes into play every time I make a piece. Locally felled and air-dried timber is used in the making of most of my products. Trees that have seen ages of history are worked with to form functional, one-of-a-kind pieces.
