These Olive bobbins are beautifully hand turned and finished and I'm afraid the photograph really doesn't do them justice, absolutely guaranteed to not mar your material/thread in any way. Olive is a nice pleasant timber to turn and has very attractive grain patterns and these particular bobbins are a good example. The finish is my normal finish, that is sanded down to 600 grit, soaked in Tung oil, which is a natural drying oil and buffed through various grades of compound to 6000 grit and a final buff with carnauba wax to give a high sheen and durability.Silky and smooth and much slimmer than the average bobbin, these are the result of more than just a few requests for a slimmer bobbin. If you like any of the timber any of these bobbins are turned from but you would like them made to suit you, for example, just a little longer, or a little slimmer or a different shape on the head or all of the above please let me know and we can work something out to suit you. Or if you would like a larger quantity, 10 or more, let me know and we can work out a better price.

I endeavour to provide cost effective and timely delivery on all orders. Please ensure that your address is correct and up to date at the time of order. Please be aware that the time frames given for delivery are a guide only and cannot be guaranteed.

Shipping to Australia.
Orders are sent by regular mail and normaly take 7-10 days and in the odd case I have seen it take nearly 3 weeks, when I asked Australia Post for an explanation so that I could let my customers know what was going on, they have so far been unable to provide a reason.
Shipping to the rest of the world.
International orders will be sent by regular mail and tracking is not available on this service simply because of the exorbitant cost charged by Australia Post for this service. You really need to allow 4 weeks for delivery, I have sent mail to the United States, Europe and Asia (Taiwan, Japan, Korea etc.) and seen it take as little as 10 days and for some inexplicable reason it has taken as long 6 weeks, especially to the US so I always advise people to allow to allow 14 to 28 days.
