Morning Street Spinning Wheel

Handmade Spinning Wheel in black walnut

After I designed and built a spinning wheel for my wife, I realized wheel building has become a true passion of mine. From that experience another desire arose; to create a wheel totally different from what’s currently available. The Morning Street Spinning Wheel is the result of a year of thorough research and tireless persistence. These beautiful wheels are handcrafted, sanded and finished with the same passion that built that first wheel.

This wheel is a bobbin lead system featuring 4 drive ratios. A poly drive band simplifies tensioning when changing speeds. Three bobbins are included with every wheel. Each bobbin assembly uses low friction bushings for minimal wear on the precision ground flyer shaft. Both maidens are fitted with a super smooth bearing surface to ensure a free spinning flyer. The 18” diameter wheel rides on maintenance free, sealed ball bearings. The tripod design combines great stability with lightweight simplicity. A quick disconnect on the footman allows the pedal to pivot up, so the front legs can fold against the wheel. An elastic strap secures the back leg and pedal together when the wheel is folded.
