Padauk and Tiger Maple Top Whorl Drop Spindle

Dave has carved distinctive checkering around the beautiful 2 5/8 inch diameter Padauk whorl of this drop spindle. The shaft has been crafted from a gorgeous piece of Tiger Maple and measures 10 1/2 inches overall, 9 inches below the whorl. The weight of this one-of-a-kind handspinning tool is 1.4 ounces. A brass hook has been added and a notch carved into the whorl.
