Midi™ Spindles $60,
Premium woods start at $75

2 1/2" diameter whorl on a 9" shaft
Weight range: .7-1.4 oz, depending on the wood.

Our Midis™ are the most popular in size, and we make these in the widest range of beautiful and colorful woods. Spinners love Bocote, Zebrawood, Purpleheart, Bloodwood and Birds Eye Maple; others love rarer woods like Pink Ivory, Ebonies and Rosewoods. Some rare woods* are difficult and expensive to obtain, and may be higher in price.

Our "Skinny Midis™" use a narrower height whorls to get lighter weights for denser woods; they have the same great spin as our Standard Midis™.  Visit the searchable Bosworth Spindle Group at Flickr to see many of our Standard and Premium Midi™ woods.  Some rare and unusual woods are in limited supply; not all woods available at all times. Colors may vary by monitor; different boards have varying color intensities and grain.

These Standard Midi™ spindles are finished with standard 9" Birch shafts, ready to test and send. Some whorls are pin-balanced for superb spin.
