For nearly 40 years, wood artisan Jonathan Bosworth has been making Journey Wheels. In 1998 he turned to making Charkhas, and, with the encouragement of Toni Neil, began making Drop Spindles. Everything we make can be ordered direct from us by mail, phone or through our website.

Come inside, and see the beautifully crafted spinning tools we offer you today.
