Making your own spinning wheel?
So, I’ve put the challenge out to my husband to make me a spinning wheel, and he said I have to come up with the plans. I love the interwebs! Some of the ideas I’m finding are below:
A walking wheel, with spindle (a la the Woolen or Great Wheel design): http://longislandhomestead.blogspot.com/2011/11/make-your-own-spinning-wheel.html
Cardboard Charka (desktop wheel): http://www.rabbitgeek.com/charka.html

Got any spinning wheel plans you like? Leave a link in the comments!
