Tiger maple was the wood chosen by Dave for the gorgeous 1 1/2 inch pear style whorl of this support spindle. He has also adorned it with his signature pyrographic leaf motif. The 10 1/2 inch shaft was made from jatoba. The weight of this beautiful handspinning tool is 0.8 ounces or 23 grams. Additional photos can be seen in our Etsy shop.
