Wheel P*rn

Two and a half years ago when I got this wheel I took a few rather dark indoor pics and since that time haven't taken any others that show off it's real beauty. So, when I gave it a fresh coat of wax yesterday, I rectified that situation. Go put the kettle on and make yourself a cup of tea while these pics load.
Lovely Lendrum Saxony in Black Walnut.
Lovely wood grain on treadles.
Lovely wood grain on wheel and elegant footmen.
Side shot.
Shot from above. Yes, I know, the lawn is filled with weeds, but I'd rather spin than deal with them.
Long elegant spokes and little orifice hook.
More lovely wood grain on wheel.
Lazy kate and extra bobbins. My pic of the under table storage for the extra whorl didn't turn out.
Lennox spinning chair.
Ready to spin away the afternoon.

It's lovely! I think I'm going to have to learn to spin, one of the gals who works at the LYS is starting a spinning group and several other knitters I know also spin and will be joining her. I don't want to be left out so I guess I'll take the plunge.

I think Saxony wheels are the prettiest!

Ahhhh, so pretty! I can't believe you've had it that long already!

Have you noticed the wood getting lighter? My BR is black walnut and I see the wood changing (which I'm happy about because it was really dark when I first got it).
