Yes, I do Spindle work too *PIC*

Mark Kauder, Phenix City, AL
>Sometimes I need to show people that I can do spindle work, too (not a well as Russ, but then again, who does? ;) ).

The local gallery that is nice enough to sell some of my work, seems to sell more of my "practical" woodwork (hair pins, bottle stoppers, etc) than the "Artsy" segmented bowls. So, I decided to see if Candle sticks will make a go of it.

These are Cocobolo, finished with lacquer. They are 12" tall, w/ 4" dia bases.

I have been using this design for about 4 years. I like it, but I would like suggestions on what features I could add to make it about 3" taller. You can only go so far with lengthening the tapers.

Critiques welcome.
