Ed Davidson (A.K.A. YoYoSpin) lives and works in Colorado Springs, Colorado. A former US Marine/Force Recon, Ed retired in 1996 from 25 years of engineering and program management with Texas Instruments and SAIC, with the aim of pursuing his life-long ambition of becoming a professional lathe artist.


Ed has been working with wood for over 40 years, the last twenty or so full-time. Turning wood and exotic composites is now his passion. Ed's work has been published in several national magazines, including the covers of The Crafts Report and American Woodturner, and is well known throughout the Rockies.

Ed's specialty is turning one-piece yo-yos and "Terror Tops" from exotic woods and plastics. He collaborated with Frank Difeo when Frank began making his first collector's yo-yos, creating custom boxes for yo-yos such as the Dif-e-Yo Daizzy-Fly.

 Of course, Davidson is also known for modding yo-yos from companies such as YoYoJam, Tom Kuhn, Recreation Revolution, and even YoYoFactory into marvelous works of art.
