Nothing says spinning like a simple, economical, but unique drop
spindle. Our top whorl drop spindle is spoked for a one-of- kind of wagon-wheel look - reminiscent of those days on the ol' Bonanza.
The spindle shaft is made of birch, while the whorl is made of ash. The whorl is 3 inches in diameter and the spindle is 3/8 of inch thick and about 12 inches in length. The spindle and whorl are hand rubbed in Danish oil and weigh approximately 1.5 ounces.
Here is a simple video showing how the "Little Joe' spins http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDZMONDi-eM If this link does not work you can go to www.youtube.com type in Little Joe Drop Spindle in the search box and find it that way.
