This delightful support bowl for supported spindling is made from Queensland Maple. The bowl is sealed and then polished to a smooth surface with friction polish then hard Carnauba wax, to give a superb durable finish. Item designed by Malcolm Fielding and made by Jory Freyee.

The contrasting Dymondwood end grain insert in the centre is for extra hardness, smoothness and best spin, as well as decorative effect. The centres have a dimple to help keep the spindle in position as it is flicked, and the two sides of the surface have different profiles. One is more funnel shaped with a parabolic curve that will hold your spindle securely, and the reverse is shallower to allow use with different whorl shapes and tilt angles.

All cracks filled with a special strengthening product to ensure longevity. This support bowl is suitable for use with metal tipped spindles. The shallower face will accommodate ball bearing and rounded glass tips by other makers as well as my short tip Dervish styles, and the deeper well suits the Pu Yok style Tibetan, and all our standard Tibetan range and current Dervish and Dyavol styles.

It is about 55 to 58 mm in diameter and is ideal for travel use or at home.

Customer review 2016 - "This is so much better than the traditional bowls most of us learn to use (or fail to learn to use). I'm finding it makes supported spinning much easier than with anything else I've tried." JC
