My granddaughter wants me to make her a diabolo.   I didn't even know what  
it looked like but she described it as two cones joined at the apex,    Can  
anyone point me in the right direction to a site where I can download plans  
for this toy?

No particular plans, but you can see a fairly basic one at
http://www.toyday.co.uk/shop/wooden-toys/wooden-diabolo/prod_526.html or

Traditional Chinese ones are slightly different -

Choose a wood that's uniformly dense or you'll have trouble balancing
the weight. Also don't make the axle too thin as they tend to get
dropped a lot.
