Drop Spindle in Leather

There have been some exciting things in leather, lately. I found some thick leather and etched a celtic knot in it. Came out nicely, and looked just like the whorl of a drop spindle. Well, by now you should know where that led me…



It spins like a dream, and if I drop it, the whorl won’t crack. Like my other signature drop spindles, I use a square stem, and the butt end is weighted for stability.

I am not a leather worker, but I guess it’s time to learn some basics.
