My first turning project on the (now broken) old Delta lathe my father brought me.
It’s called a Nostepinde (nosty) and is used for winding a center-pull ball of yarn. Looks identical to a nautical peg… coincidence?
The wood comes for an unidentified tree that died in my back yard. Fragrant with small white flowers (not Dogwood). Very light… I used the ball winder all the time. Looking forward to making more.
It is unfinished and sanded silky smooth.
