This was my first attempt at a spinning wheel. A friend brought me a pile of wood that used to be a spinning wheel and asked if I could “fix” it. I’ve always wanted to build one so I took on the project as a learning experience. I had to fabricate the wheel, hub, and one back leg as the original parts were beyond repair. I then sanded everything down to bare wood and finished it with Teak Oil. I also replaced all the metal components, the drive belt, and hooking tool. My friend was quite pleased.
Now to design one and build it for my wife…
