Happy you could drop in. I am Kevin Rhodes born in the Fylde and living in Kirkham. Having an inherant intrest in wood and art since childhood and following an enforced career change, I now enjoy the craftsmanship of woodturning. Having mastered the basic skills I now specialise in a wide variety of unique hand turned boxes, bowls, platters, spindles and art forms. I enjoy working with all our native woods, sometimes adding some exotic wood d'ecor. One day Laal Bear stoped in, that had purchased several items from me and asked if I could build a drop spindle. After some experimentation and research I came up with a workable drop spindle. And since that time, I've turned my creativity to drop spindles. Currently selling through my Website, Craft Fairs and undertaking commisions I am now trying to begin a new career in "wood".
I specialise in beautiful handcrafted well-balanced high-low combined whorl drop spindles for hand spinning wool roving and other fibres. Looking for that something special you don't see listed, then please let me know and I will make it to your own spec. My selection varies as woods are available to me. Let me know if you are looking for a particular wood, weight, or size of whorl. Veiw my Online Store for drop spindles and more.
