On Etsy since 2014

I started making spindles when a friend wanted to buy a generic drop spindle to learn on, I looked at it and offered to make one instead. After some research I realized I needed a lathe that I quickly purchased Craigslist for $50 along with some walnut, cherry lumber and tools. So about $200 later I set off to make my friend a $20 drop spindle… I enjoyed time on the lathe and that time led me to getting better at making spindles. After a few weeks it was suggested I try to toss a few on ETSY and see what happens and my first few sales were made which motivated me to keep going.

I started looking at other spindle makers for inspiration and realized there were so many possibilities between materials, designs and colors. I wanted to make something different but at the same time still it be 100% functional. Every dollar I made went right back at buying a new materials, woods and tools to try new ideas.

You might see a variety of spindles in my shop but there are always “experiments” that I am working on. I have a drawer full of prototypes that I didn’t like or I didn’t think were ready for production that get left there just in case they inspire me to try something new. Many of my ideas are a hodgepodge of other ideas that just happen to come together and work.

Thanks for checking out my shop!
