If you have read "Portrait of a Hand Spinner" you will have read about Cecile's quest to make the perfect spindle. One of the first spindles she made herself was the CD spindle. Here are the instructions for the CD spindle drawn by Eddie. A very big thanks to Cecile for letting us in on how she did this. If you have any questions that are not answered in the how-to, feel free to comment them below and we will get Cecile to answer them for you.
