This spinning bowl is made from carved walnut and curly maple and is approximately 7/8" (2.2 cm) tall and 2" (5 cm) in diameter. 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. It has a neoprene pad on the bottom to keep it from slipping around on slippery surfaces such as table tops.
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 spinning bowl is compatible with all Woodland Woodworking spindles. It may be compatible with other spindles depending on the shape of the spinning tip.
