Tibetan Spindle with Captive Ring in Eastern Red Cedar and Wild Cherry
Every piece of red cedar has its own grain patterning. This made to order spindle will be truly unique. The captive ring on the shaft adds a decorative flair. This is a made to order item. As such it will ship within 1 – 2 weeks.

The elegant whorl is turned from Eastern Red Cedar. The shaft is turned from Sugar Maple with a captive ring. This gorgeous spindle has a very fast, long spin. The spinning tip is a stainless steel ball bearing.

This Tibetan spindle, like all of my offerings, is French polished, then waxed to shine with a protective layer of beeswax.
All of my spindles are tested by me, my wife, or one of my daughters before shipment. Sometimes it is necessary for me to pin weight the whorl with a small copper pin in order to make it perfectly balanced.
