Here is a hand made Russian Spindle from my lathe. They are finished to a high gloss with an old french polish.
I don't just make them!
I use them also so until I'm satisfied with the a new design of mine it dose not go in to production.
On the shaft I have put a barley twist due to how polished the spindle is it needs a little something to grab on to.
And is also pleasant to the eyes and touch.
