    My new Turkish glider is even better than I anticipated! It spins a very long time, is well balanced and beautiful to look at. The Leopardwood is a pleasant color with good grain. Did you carve and dye tiny stripes on the Maple shaft’s bottom ornament to match the Leopardwood?! I started spinning as soon as I unpacked and had a difficult time stopping, because it was so much fun. Totally worth the price. In fact, shipping was free and so speedy — It only took a couple of days to reach Honolulu. This is my third Snyder Spindle and I already want another one. Maybe I’ll get one of the steampunk looking ones with the waffle pattern in 2023. Scott, your work is gorgeous and thanks for the itty bitty black sheep too.

    Beautifully made and balanced. Looking forward to spinning on this

    It has a good spin, but for the money, it's rather pedestrian.
