The Three Sisters Lightweight Walnut and Birch Drop Spindles with Pyrography




The "Three Sisters" are a group of mountains in the Cascade Range that we see every day here in Central Oregon. Dave has crafted his latest trio of lightweight drop spindles, so named for these beautiful mountains, from dark, elegant walnut. Each whorl has been notched and adorned with Dave's signature pyrographic leaf design. The end of each birch shaft has been shaped to accommodate a half hitch and a brass hook has been added to the top.


The sizes of these spindles are:


*Length: 10 inch spindle 
Diameter: 2 3/8 inch whorl
Weight: 1.0 ounces


*Length: 8 inch spindle
Diameter: 2 inch whorl
Weight: 0.75 ounces


*Length: 6 inch spindle
Diameter: 1 1/2 inch whorl
Weight: 0.5 ounces
