Myrtlewood Tibetan Lite Support Spindle with Matching Lap Bowl

This beautiful little "Tibetan Lite" weights 0.8 ounces (23 grams). The goncalo alves shaft measures about 10 inches in length and the myrtlewood whorl measures about 1 1/4 inches in diameter. The end of the shaft has been shaped to accommodate a half hitch.

Dave has crafted the beautiful matching lap support spinning bowl from myrtlewood and has adorned it with his signature pyrographed leaf motif. The ceramic bowl measures 1 3/4 inches in diameter, and the myrtlewood base is approximately 2 1/2 inches in diameter and 6 1/2 inches in length. Jo has used as earthy green glaze on the earthenware clay inner bowl. Cork dots on the bottom keep the wood from scratching your chair.
