Give a Bruce Charles Designs Spinning Top to Dad This Year for a Thoughtful Father's Day Present

Bruce Charles Designs is proud to unveil our second new spinning top available for purchase: the “Schulte Bronze Edition” spinning top.

When Bill Strahan, the founder of Bruce Charles Designs, was learning to use the lathe, he made a list of projects to create as a sort of curriculum for his self-education. A solid brass top seemed ideal to gain experience with the material as well as with different types of turning, facing and knurling. And from this, the original "Schulte Brass Edition" was created.

Named after a friend, we have retained the “Schulte” name for our tops while adding material variations. Both the brass and bronze tops are similar in shape, both have silicon nitride ceramic bearing, and both are CNC Machined from a solid piece of metal to achieve the ideal balance of beauty and purpose. They are beautiful, high quality, polished spinning tops with only one difference – one is brass, and one is bronze. A stainless steel edition and an aluminum/brass fused edition are both in the works!

We consider both the “Schulte Brass Edition” and the new “Schulte Bronze Edition” to be functional pieces of art for people who appreciate clever designs and beautiful materials. These spinning tops make an ideal gift for Father’s Day. They are unique, eye-catching and are just the right thing to make your dad say “That’s cool!”

Both tops are affordable gifts and are something every father can use. Whether to keep at home for fun with the family or to keep at the office on an executive’s desk, it is the perfect gift for the “guy who has everything.” We know dads can be competitive and these tops appeal to the competitive nature. Dads everywhere can challenge friends, co-workers and family to see who can spin it the longest.

Our “Captive Nut” Keyring is another everyday carry piece that makes a great gift for Father’s Day. The simple design of brass, stainless and nickel plated stainless steel rings is an intriguing “puzzle” as you figure out how to remove the nut while also serving as every dad’s favorite fidget toy.

These elegant yet functional pieces of art are sure to put a smile on your dad’s face on Father’s Day! Visit our store at or purchase a “Schulte Brass Edition” top, “Schulte Bronze Edition” top or "The Captive Nut” keyring on Amazon with Prime shipping!
