Beautiful! I was just plying with my yellow heart spindle this afternoon. It has the longest spin. I could be on my rooftop and it would still be spinning when it touches the ground. Lisa B. – June 30
My kick spindle arrived safely yesterday (Sat., Sept. 16, Order #483). Even without a final coat of finish it is clearly a work of art. Your expertise and care as a woodworker is obvious. I am in awe of the workmanship, care and the planning which has gone into this exquisite tool.
My husband will advise me on choices of sandpaper, oils, etc., but I will do the final sanding and apply the final finish myself. I will keep you informed how it goes and send you a photo when completed. In that way, you can say that even a 76 year old great-grandmother (that’s me) can do it! Blessings, Cay – Sept 18
I think your kick spindle design is pure genius and should make a fabulous traveling spindle. I am so glad that you make it out of American cherry and maple. Both wonderful, beautiful woods. I am excited to know that I can be a part of your current batch that you are assembling. Terrific! Susan K. – November 7
Oiled my kick spindle. Took it out for a test run today. Spins beautifully. I love the relaxing sound of the yarn flicking off the tip of the spindle. Thanks for bringing me a beautiful piece of fiber art equipment. What a treasure to spin with!

I know my sister will really appreciate it; as I mentioned, she was introducing me to spinning and used your Kick Spindle as the epitome of the art today. She had quite a “presentation” though it was impromptu, and clearly had done a lot of “research” in arriving at her conclusion, so you bested a lot of competition. Since this was “wishes and desires”, cost was not a factor, and the “competition” was based solely on the merits of your creation.

I am really very happy with this wheel. It is extremely easy to spin on.. and Very relaxing as well!!
The spin lasts such a good long time… I can even stand up to finish the draw.. and I am a tall one!
Here are two photos.. I will take again with a better background.. but wanted to share the progress and the finished oiled spindle with you!

The Akha spindle is fantastic! It is one of the best spindles I have EVER spun on for short staples. I have been spinning a cashmere/silk blend on it and can’t believe how well it works! I have a picture on my phone. Send me your phone number and I will forward you the pics! You have to make more of these!

Hi Jim, just thought I’d send this through to you for a bit of fun. With the kick spindle you are obviously not constrained by the size of the orifice on a traditional spinning wheel, so this is awesome for art yarns.
