Handcrafted in Canada by Moosehill Woodworks. John takes exceptional care when choosing the hardwoods to craft his spindles from, creating beautiful tools that are a joy to spin with. 

If you haven't tried a Turkish Drop Spindle yet, give it a spin! They're portable, collapsible, and create a unique cop (called a turtle on this type of spindle) that can be removed by sliding out the shaft and arms to reveal a centre-pull ball.
