This spinning bowl is approximately 2" (5.1 cm) in diameter and 1" (2.5 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.* The neoprene non-skid surface on the bottom is very effective at keeping the bowl in place when used on slick 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 bowl is fairly shallow and is compatible with all Woodland Woodworking spindles. It may be compatible with other spindles depending on the shape of the spinning tip.
*If using as a candle holder, be sure to only use a tealight candle as these candles have a metal base to catch any melted wax. Melted wax may ruin the spinning surface.
