Every year I like to make drop spindle ornaments. This year’s ornament has a whorl made from Sapele which was featured in my Whorl Wood Wednesday series (#17Facebook page). It is harvested in tropical Africa. The ornament is about 1 ¼” in diameter and about 3 ½” long. Spinners like them as part of their Christmas decorations, to hang from their spinning wheels and some hang them from their rear view mirrors. Some have been known to spin some fiber on them too!
