This spinning bowl is approximately 2" (5.1 cm) across and 7/8" (2.2 cm) tall. The spinning surface has a small ridge designed to keep spindles from jumping out of the bowl and is also able to hold a tealight candle.
Metal tipped spindles are not recommended to be used with wooden spinning bowls such as this one as they can damage the spinning surface. This bowl is compatible with all Woodland Woodworking spindles. It may be compatible with other spindles depending on the shape of the spinning tip.
