Welcome to Cynthia Wood Spinner

Why I make spindles

I, Cynthia D. Haney, 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 and becomes functional art. Then it has to meet perfectionist standards for function and finish. Every step is hands on, no duplicators or automated machines involved. I sign all the tools with my initials, CDH in an interlocked monogram. Each spindle is marked with the date, weight, and numbered in the order made.

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