After getting a very nice ArtFire sale, I decided to go ahead and invest some cash in supplies to make plenty more drop spindles. I found a good woodworking store online and discovered that to buy the dowels pre-cut to 12" would be about $1.10 each. However, buying 36" dowels, a pack of 100 was $22.00. That's right. $0.22 each, then cut into three pieces means these dowels are now about 7 cents.
It costs a dollar to make a single cut?
Well. . . .
Here's what I think of that!

Hooray for power tools! Now to assemble a hundred or so drop spindles!
