Just a quick check in. I am so excited that my Watson spinning wheel has been completed and that Andrew Watson will be shipping it right after the first of the year. I have been patiently waiting for four years and after looking at the pictures he sent me this week, it has been worth every single minute of the wait. Andrew is an amazing spinning wheel maker and craftsman. There's only one word for his work: awesome. So now I have this itch of anticipation and can hardly wait for the time when a big crate is delivered to my door. Here are a few pictures. Can I possibly contain myself for the next couple of weeks???
The wheel is American black walnut and the accent woods are Purple Heart and Blackwood. I am sure the pictures don't do it justice and it will be even more beautiful in person. Thank you, Andrew.
