Myrtlewood and Walnut Tibetan Support Spindle with Matching Bowl

Dave has crafted the whorl of this elegant Tibetan support spindle from myrtlewood burl and the shaft is walnut. He has added oak leaves around the whorl, and they are also on the matching support bowl. The length of this spindle is 11 1/2 inches, and the weight is 50 grams.
Our ceramic bowl measures 1 3/4 inches in diameter, and the gorgeous myrtlewood wood base is 2 3/4 inches in diameter. Cork has been added to the bottom of this bowl to keep the wood from scratching other hard surfaces.
