Lathe turned without a form, each of my spindles is shaped by a combination of what I see in the wood, and how I feel at the moment. Thus each piece is individual.
This drop spindle has a whorl of bamboo, mounted and glued to a lighter shaft of Oak. The wood and bamboo are both reclaimed (upcycled) materials. The Oak came from a busted chair, and the Bamboo from leftover flooring. The whorl on this one is 2 1/2 inches wide.
Spindle Weight 37 g and just under 12 inches long, including the hook.
Due to a current conflicting set of schedules, I will be shipping out once a week, on Saturdays gor the current forsee able future. This is only a delay of 24-48 hours from the old policy, and I apologize if this causes any inconvenience .
I try to ship securely, inside boxes, tubes, or re-enforced envelopes.
My shipping prices are based on the USPS Web Site estimates, if the package ends up costing less to send, I will refund the difference (If it's more, I'll just eat it.)
International Shipping. I usually ship First Class internationally. I will not forge Customs forms, and if your destination country charges additional customs/import tariffs/fees that are not part of the destination shipping fee (IOW if they ask you for money at delivery and not me at time of sending it) those fees are the buyer's responsibility.
If sent USPS Priority (US address Spindles for example), it of course includes tracking and insurance, and International will have it's customs number.
