I promised to post photos of the spindles that Jim made. Please forgive the quality of these. I am used to using Adobe Photoshop 3.1 as my photo editor, and since we have recently upgraded to Photoshop 7.0, I haven't a clue as to what I am doing. It is a little scary, but I am sure that one of these days I will get it right...maybe. ;-)

Here is a shot of both of the spindles. The top whorl one is made from purpleheart wood and maple, and the bottom whorl is made of walnut. What I couldn't capture on the photo is the gloss that makes these glow and look like satin.

Here is another shot of the whorls.

We still need to work on refining the shafts, but they are fun to experiment on.

Happy Birthday Mama Kate! I hope it was a great one for you!

(And I will put up some pics of my spindles tomorrow.)
