Kundert Spindles

These beautifully handcrafted top-whorl spindles made by Steve Kundert are 10.5" long with a stainless steel hook and notch on the whorl. Weights vary between 1.0 and 1.5 ounces. They come in a variety of woods (mostly a combination of ash, cedar, walnut and cherry) so the exact look of the spindle you purchase may not match pictures. Additionally, the multi-colored spindles can vary in the placement of the various pieces of wood on the whorl. You might think of each as a "one of a kind."

All the Kundert top whorl drop spindles are turned as a complete unit (whorl glued to shaft prior to turning)– thereby insuring the best balance possible. The whorl diameter starts out at 3-1/2” and ends up at about 3-3/8” after turning. The shafts are tapered with fancy turning at the bottom so these spindles could also be used as a low whorl. The shaft length on all spindles is 8-1/2” (below the whorl) about 10-1/2” overall (not including the hook). The hooks are fashioned from .43 gauge stainless steel wire. Once they are adjusted they hold the adjustment very well. Each spindle has a notch cut at about the three o’clock position for the fiber to pass through. All drop spindles have several coats of a polymerized oil finish and a final buff with carnuba wax. Only one coat of finish is placed on the shaft to ensure the shaft is not too slippery but still remains protected. All spindles range from .9 to 1.5 ounces.
