The beautiful 2 1/4 inch diameter notched top whorl of this drop spindle was crafted from a gorgeous piece of Stratabond. To complement the lovely colors of the Stratabond, Dave chose birch for the 9 inches long shaft (this includes the added brass hook). This spindle weights .8 ounces.

~What is Stratabond?~

Stratabond is a trademark product of the Rutland Plywood Corporation, and is composed of dye impregnated wood veneers in rich earth tones.
