Bob Jarrett of Norman teaches Colleen Sommerfeld (cq), 7, of Lawton, to make a wooden top spin after releasing it from its string. Jarrett was among several members of the Central Woodturners  Association who at the group's booth in the Creative Arts Building at the Oklahoma State Fair on Saturday, Sep. 22, 2012.  Jarrett said he and fellow woodturners enjoy making wooden tops and watching the delight on children's faces when they master the release technique. The wooden top Jarrett uses here is the same one he played with as a small boy. Today was Sommerfeld's first time to throw a top and it was her first visit to the state fair.
