Eucalyptus Burl and Paduak Mini Top Whorl Drop Spindle

Dave has crafted the 1 3/4 inch diameter notched whorl of this mini top whorl drop spindle from eucalyptus burl, and the 8 inch shaft from paduak. A brass hook has been added to the top. Brass inlay has been added to some of the voids in the burl. 

The weight of this beautiful handspinning tool is 0.8 ounces.
