Beautifully constructed, perfectly balanced one-of-a-kind top whorl drop spindle:

• Whorl – 2 3/4” Diameter of Zebrawood
• Shaft – 9 1/8” Bocote (below the whorl)
• Hook – 18 gauge Nickel Silver Hand Bent Wire
• Weight – 1.5 oz. or 42.52 grams

Each spindle that Ken creates is unique, one of a kind and this drop spindle is no exception. For the whorl on this spindle, Ken selected a beautiful piece of Zebrawood. This wood is a rich warm golden beige wood with a distinctive dark brownish-black wavy grain across the whorl and down the sides. For the shaft Ken chose a lovely piece of Bocote which matches the Zebrawood perfectly. It isn't often that you can combine two distinctly different woods and have them match each other so beautifully.

Not only is this a unique and beautiful spindle with a silky smooth finish, but it spins like a dream! This beautifully crafted spindle, complete with an 18 gauge, hand bent Nickel Silver hook, is made to last a life time, and become a frequently used family heirloom, passed down from one spinner to another.

We hope you enjoy our shop and appreciate our designs. All wood used in our beautiful drop spindles is purchased from suppliers who practice sustainable wood production. For questions, convo us or check out our store policies:
