My wife does alot of knitting. As a result, I end up learning about it and by default end up getting enlisted (pressed into service, more like) to make items to support her hobby. This spindle is used to wind the wool into yarn. Kinda like a small, hand powered spinning wheel. She wanted a “pretty one”, so I made one for her out of mahogany.

your not looking at this project the right way. you weren’t merely pressed into serve, you were allowed the opportunity to to make the case for a new tool. a tool that would do her project justice :), but you did great anyway, and I know she loves it

Erik, it’s true. I was able to use this to help my wife feel better about the expense of the lathe. Now to plan out a sofa table and sideboard so I can justify a planer! :D

Great Job! I’ve been making some for my friends. I love making them, but I’m not talented enough to use them.
