Tiger Maple Tibetan Lite Support Spindle with Wormy Maple Spinning Bowl

This beautiful little "Tibetan Lite" support spindle weights 1.0 ounces (28 grams). The hickory shaft measures about 10 1/2 inches in length and the whorl, which is crafted from tiger maple, measures about 1 1/2 inches in diameter.

Accompanying this spindle, is a variation of our originally designed support spinning bowl that combines the efficiency of a ceramic surface with the stability of a wide beautiful wooden base. While it still features our wide base and ceramic insert, this bowl has been raised with a short decorative spindle. The ceramic insert measures 1 3/4 inches in diameter, and the gorgeous wormy maple base is 2 3/4 inches in diameter and 2 3/4 inches in height. Cork has been added to the bottom of this bowl to keep the wood from scratching other hard surfaces.
