Acorn Support Spindle

This is a new design for Grizzly Mountain Arts!  Dave has made other acorn shaped fiber art tools in the past, but never a spindle.

This beautiful 1 7/8 inch acorn whorl was crafted from poplar.  Pyrography was used to do the detailing on the cap.  The 11 1/2 inch long shaft was made from walnut and the weight of this spindle is 51 grams (1.8 ounces).
