This Steampunk medium weight top whorl drop spindle weighs 0.9-1.1 oz (26-31 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 Red Mahogany and sealed.
I hand turn these with the mass to the rim for better balance and longer spin. well balanced and tested
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'm in love with this spindle. It's balanced and spins like crazy. And it holds a lot of fiber.

Great weight, spins beautifully balanced! The way it’s made, the wood gleams and glows. Amazing tool.
