This was a custom order piece I recently finished. A niddy noddy is used for measuring out lengths of yarn (this one measures 1 yard per wrap).
The customer wanted it to be collapsible, so I turned the center spindle with a 3/8” tenon on each end, which seats into a rubber grommet that has been secured in each of the end spindles.
Because the pieces are not permanently glued in place like most niddy noddy’s, I was able to take the design from the center spindle and continue it through the end spindles, as well. It was honestly the most fun I’ve ever had on the lathe :) All pieces were finished with 3 coats of tung oil.
Thanks for looking!
