This drop spindle is made with a black onyx whorl, and an oak shaft. The shaft was turned, sanded, and finished with my home-made wood polish. The hook is brass to perfectly accent the whorl. Shaft is adjustable.
I tested this spindle and it has a nice fast spin. Width : 2 inches or 50 mm Length: 9 inches Weight: .99 ounces or 27 grams
