On a trip to the United Kingdom last year I saw a spinning demonstration where a lady was using a spinning wheel similar to this, so I took some pictures and built this one when I got home. The frame is cherry and the wheel is poplar. After having a local spinner test it I found the wheel had too much wobble because I did not drill the holes for the spokes correctly so I built a new wheel using 1/2 inch plywood disc with cherry rim glued and pegged to it. It was a fun project but I don’t think I will be building any more, it is a lot of work.
