These Rosewood bobbins are a little larger than the small ones that I make and are beautifully hand turned and finished, and they are absolutely guaranteed to not mar your material/thread in any way.
The finish is my normal finish, that is sanded down to 600 grit, soaked in Tung oil, which is a natural drying oil and buffed through various grades of compound to 6000 grit and a final buff with carnauba wax to give a high sheen and durability.
Silky and smooth and much slimmer than the average bobbin, these are the result of more than just a few requests for a slimmer bobbin.
If you like any of the timber any of these bobbins are turned from but you would like them made to suit you, for example, just a little longer, or a little slimmer or a different shape on the head or all of the above please let me know and we can work something out to suit you. Or if you would like a larger quantity, 10 or more, let me know and we can work out a better price.
As always I strive to produce an heirloom quality item and I'm quite sure that you would be happy to own and use these bobbins.
