Walnut and Tiger Maple Top Whorl Drop Spindle with Pyrography

Walnut and tiger maple are the woods chosen by Dave for this beautiful drop spindle. He has used pyrography (burn etching) to adorn the notched 2 1/2 inch walnut whorl with his signature leaf motif. The overall length of the tiger maple shaft, including the brass hook, is 10 inches and the weight is 1.1 ounce.
