Mini Eucalyptus Burl, East Indian Rosewood and Dymondwood Tibetan Support Spindle Travel Set

The 1 1/2 inch whorl of this mini Tibetan spindle was crafted from eucalyptus burl. The 8 1/2 inch shaft has been crafted from East Indian rosewood, and the tip has been crafted from purple dymondwood. The weight of this beautiful spindle is 0.8 oz. (21 grams).

When constructing his spindles, Dave mounts the spindle whorl blank on the shaft, and then turns and shapes the whorl and shaft together to achieve a well balanced spindle.

Also included with this set is a mini ceramic spinning bowl that travels securely in it's velvet pouch.
