Compromise Tibetan Support Spindle with a hook...YARRRRGGH

The road goes ever on and Anglo Saxon Runes on the rim...

With some hills and pines and a Wind Lord burned in for good measure and good company...

The Heavy Tibetan is a wool spindle and will spin the twistiest wool...Not for everyone, this spindle form has a loyal following at festivals.

My most watched lesson!

A Wood Turner's Note: All of the wood I use, are discards that a cabinet maker will not touch. Burls, Twists, Knots, Heavy Figuring...All unwanted by production shops, are a thing of beauty to me. Sometimes a piece sets for a decade before it tells me what it wants to be.

My items are all guaranteed. If you do not like it, you can send it back & I will refund the purchase price...No questions.
