Birdseye Maple and Purpleheart Tibetan Lite Support Spindle with Matching Bowl

Dave has crafted this beautiful 1.0 ounce "Tibetan Lite" support spindle from Birdseye maple and purpleheart woods. The Birdseye maple whorl measures about 1 1/2 inches in diameter, and the purpleheart shaft is 10 1/2 inches long. The end of the shaft has been shaped to accommodate a half hitch. Jo used a wine colored glaze on the ceramic insert in the matching Birdseye maple bowl that almost perfectly matches the purpleheart shaft of the spindle.

This beautiful support spindle and bowl set can be found in our Etsy shop.
