I made this for my mom based on Dan Douthart’s excellent Youtube video:

I didn’t hang the ornament like he did, the little cat is from a Christmas stocking I got from mom many years ago. Glad I saved all those wee toys!
The body is walnut and the spindles are canary wood.
Merry Christmas!

Fantastic—- It will have people commenting when they see it!

It will also be a “borrowed/STOLEN) idea too.
