IST Crafts Turkish Spindle - Zebrawood

FC-TZ

IST Crafts Turkish Spindles are lovingly hand made from selected hardwoods in Ian’s workshop on the Isle of Wight located in the English Channel. With a design that is unique to IST Crafts they offer a very attractive spindle that will just keep spinning.

Shaft Wood: English Ash

In order to provide stable yet attractive shafts, Ian uses hand selected hardwoods for the Turkish shafts. Each shaft is finely hand turned from the acorn bottom finial to the gentle taper of the main shaft. Particular attention is given to the joint to ensure each shaft fits securely to the cross members so ensuring the spindle spins true.

Shaft Features

  • Cross Member Diameter 80mm
    • Length: 140cm
    • Width 6mm
  • Cross Member Diameter 110mm
    • Length: 160cm
    • Width: 7mm

Cross Member Wood: Zebrawood

The cross members are sourced from a supplier of specialty hardwoods for musical instruments. All are hand made in matching pairs to ensure a snug fit and coordination of wood grain and color.

The weight of the spindle depends on what type of spinning you are doing. Lighter weights for finer threads, heaver for the thicker threads and of course your personal preference.

Weights and sizes:

  • Cross Member Diameter: 80mm
    • Weight: 10gm to 14gm
  • Cross Member Diameter: 110mm
    • Weight: 24gm to 32gm
