Here is a hand made Turkish Drop Spindle from my lathe. Thay are finished to a high gloss with an old french polish.
The top is an old method I have found to work the best where you throuw a half hitch over and the spindle has a smother spin oposed to a hook in the top or coming to a point. I dont just make them I use them also so untill I'm satisfyed with the a new design of mine it do'se not go in to production.
On the shaft I have put a barly twist due to how polished the spindle is it needs a little somthing to grab on to.
And is also pleasent to the eyes and touch.
