Snakewood Turkish Delight

I received this beauty for Christmas from my husband. It is made by Ed Jenkins. My Turkish Delight spindle weighs 1.3 oz; it is made out of rare Snakewood, the shaft is Apple wood.
I was using a larger Turkish spindle before, and only for plying. With this little spindle I spun some wool and silk using drop spindle method.
Amazingly easy to use, and so beautiful!

Seeing the picture reminded Ed that he used Apple wood for the shaft.
