Apricot and Walnut Top Whorl Drop Spindle with Pyrography

Dave has burn-etched his signature leaf motif around this 1 7/8 inch diameter apricot whorl. He has crafted the 8 1/2 inch shaft from walnut, and has added a brass hook to the top. The weight of this beautiful handspinning tool is 0.8 ounces.

Additional photos can be seen at the listing for this spindle.
