I have always liked to make my own juggling equipment or modify what specialized brands do, it is a way of having unique material, or textures that are not on the market, and it facilitates their repair if necessary.

Making your own material makes you value your instruments more, and can lower the costs of the workshops you do.

We carry out workshops where students build part of their material, or we even do workshops where modifying and making their own material is the main part.

You can see some research on materials in the Blog.

And here you have a tutorial on how to make diabolo sticks with reusable material.
