Ancient Kauri Wood Spindles

Jonathan's fascination with beautiful and rare woods interested him in ancient Kauri wood, many thousands of years old. Kauri is light in weight — Finished Midis range from 20-25 grams; Minis, 14-19 grams; Featherweight, 12-15 grams. Kauri is a beautiful 'napped' wood, a deep warm cinnamon brown when looking 'down the grain;' a lighter amber color when looking 'up the grain.' The price of these is $75 for a Midi, $65 for a Mini or Featherweight. Add $20 for a shaft in Cherry, Walnut, Cochin Rosewood, Tulipwood, Bocote or Bloodwood.  Due to the variations in wood density, most of these whorls will be balanced with a fine brass pin placed in the underside of the whorl.

TO REQUEST A KAURI SPINDLE, please contact us by e-mail.

Please note:  Our standard shaft is 9" long. You may request a short 7 1/2" shaft at any time.
