Dave has created this stunningly elegant top whorl drop spindle from Hawaiian koa and holly. He has added beautiful checkering around the 3 inch koa whorl and has also adorned the whorl with his signature rose and leaf motif on carved buffalo bone. The shaft of this spindle is holly and the overall length is 10 1/2 inches. The weight of this spindle is 1.4 ounces and a brass hook has been added to the top.
