Seven Handcrafted Grab Box Lace Bobbins

Brighten up your lace pillow with these colorful bobbins!

Dave calls these “grab box bobbins” because he throws bits, pieces and ends of turnings of previous tools into a box, and while making these bobbins, he just randomly grabbed pieces out of the box to join and turn. The stems are made of birch wood and the lowers ends are joined from a variety of woods and colored celluloid rings. These are a total of seven Continental style bobbins about 4 inches long.

These "grab box bobbins" are currently up for auction on Ebay
