Pear Whorl Takli Walnut and Maple Support Drop Spindle

This pear whorl Takli support spindle measures about 11 1/2 inches long and weights about 1.2 ounces. The whorl was turned from a beautiful piece of Walnut and the shaft from Maple. Cobalt blue celluloid accent rings have been added for a pop of color. Dave has also added a brass hook so you can use this spindle as either a supported spindle or a drop spindle.
