Medium Weight Checker Board Gear Spindle
top whorl drop spindle weighs 1-1.1 oz (29-31 g)
It features a hand-turned 3 1/2" diameter whorl made from Baltic birch ply, with a 10" long poplar shaft with a dinner bell hook.
Stained Gun stock and sealed.
I hand turn these with the mass to the rim for better balance and longer spin, well balanced.
This unique shape is not just stylish but does what a good drop spindle does...spin.
The center cutouts not only makes it lighter it puts the majority of the mass to the rim and that's a good thing. Who doesn't want 20 notches?

I love this spindle! Very pretty with a hand-fashioned hook. I just made a second order for another top whorl with a different design.

This is beautifully made and spins well. I love the gear design which is so convenient because you have all the notches you could wish for.
