Why I make spindles. I prefer beautiful quality tools. I started hand spinning in 2011. Wanting my dream drop spindle I learned how to use the lathe and made it myself. Every tool I turn comes straight from my imagination. Then it has to meet perfectionist standards for function and execution. Every step is hands on, no duplicators or automated machines involved, further making one of a kind results. I sign all the tools with my initials, CDH in an interlocked monogram. Each drop spindle also gets dated, weight, and numbered in the order made.

Any spindle requests or questions please email me:
I want satisfied customers whose tools, functional art, work well. Please let me know if you are having a problem so I can work with you to resolve it.
