This is one of my newest wood combinations for Tibetan Style Spindles. It is hand laminated layers of Cherrywood, Yellow Heart, and Red Heart woods. The shaft is hand turned cherrywood. The bowl is also Cherry wood. I hand turned the shaft from Cherry wood. The shaft is about 11 inches long and the whorl is about 2 3/4 inches in diameter. It spins a long time and I think you will enjoy it.
