OMG - UPS came, delivered, I went and picked up...and and and....

Here's a shot of the box. It's 25" x 25" x 25".





Let's open it up:




Lots of packing peanuts there. Wonder what's under all of 'em??




Wow - it's like a puzzle. Let's put it together now!




Pictures do NOT do this wheel justice. It's - wow. Just, wow. American chestnut wood, beautiful turnings, PERFECT woodworking.....and she SPINS. Oh, wow - does she spin! Like...buttah. That sounds hokey, but it is Oh, So True.

She's *tiny*, believe it or not. Approximate measurements are : 28" L x 21" W x 30" H. Give or take...and the drive wheel? It's 24", I think....maybe 26". I don't want to pull the wheel off just to measure it. *g*


I'm going to dig thru the stash to find something.....suitable for this wheel. I'm thinking silk. Hand-dyed silk. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm....gotta go spin!!

*snicker* That's almost *exactly* what I said to Alden when I called them earlier.

Oh, Lordy! This wheel spins like a dream! (shhhhhhh - better than my castle wheel, but I never said that!)

Worth the money and the wait!

I'm telling you - she spins absolutely wonderfully!

And, ya know....come over and you can play on her! *g* I'll enable away - Alden's...a bit hard to get along with, sometimes, but he Does know his stuff!

Besides, I'm almost finished with something for your house. Do you want sheepy things all over, or just in your kitchen? Inquiring minds want to know....

*g* Great! I can get back to it then with a clear conscience! *eg* I needed to make sure that *this* sheepie would work in a particular room. Or, I'd need to make him change...and these sheep have a mind of their own. *gg*

I saw this wheel in parts as AA was working on it! I didn't know it was yours.

I love this new style. I have 4 wheels. No. 3. Brans got one. I already have two AA's and a extra flyer for plying. Stop me, Verna. Dang it...

Beautiful wheel. I think I better visit to try it out, no?
