Sorry I am a day late. I had everything ready in time except for time itself. This week I spun a sample on my Maggie Low Whorl
Maker: Magpie Woodworks
Weight: 24 g / 3/4oz
Length: 11" Shaft 2 1/2" Whorl
Style: Low Whorl
Woods: Red Oak
As mentioned before, this spindle is very well balanced. There is an extra pin to even everything out. I have noticed this in my other Magpie Woodworks spindles (except one and its the only one that wobbles). The length under the whorl is 2".
This is a decent sized spindle, it's not huge and heavy but its not so dainty you'd be afraid to break it. Both ends are nice and smooth so you don't have to worry so much if you spindle drops to the floor.

Lovely, thank you! (Wandered in from a Google Image Search for low-whorl spindles.) I'm off to check out their website. I like a plain spindle with pretty wood. As you mentioned, from the pictures I thought it was all one piece, rather than shaft and whorl being separate!
