Each Marudai is lovingly made (to order only) and likely to
become a future heirloom. The 25cm diameter top is hand turned
from sycamore or maple and very finely sanded to a smooth
surface. No wax or varnish is applied since the action of the
threads will produce a lovely patina in time. The square base and
hand turned legs are made of hardwood and finished with a low
gloss polyurethane for protection.
The bobbins are individually made from
tropical hardwoods to the weight required. Usual weights are 37gm
or 70gm or 100gm. A minimum order of eight bobbins.
