About Jenkins Yarn Tools

Ed Jenkins Woodworking
Home of Ed Jenkins’ unique styles based on the basic Turkish Spindle.

Ed applies creative innovations of his deep understanding of wood, gained through a lifetime woodworking passion, to designing various styles and sizes of spindles. Ed reinterprets the ancient concept of a Turkish spindle with a focus on aesthetics and achieving the best spin possible. All Ed’s spindles and Great Wheel are made using simple tools in his home shop in a small village tucked against the western foothills of the Cascade Mountains in N Oregon. No computerized machines or tools are used in Ed’s woodshop.

Ed fell in love with woodworking when he was a young boy and has been playing with wood ever since. Making spindles and Great Wheels for people who are passionate about using excellent tools brings him great joy and satisfaction. He especially likes to use locally source woods such as Bigleaf Maple, boxwood, lilac and holly, as well as sustainably harvested woods from around the world.

Wanda does all the office work as well as some of the buffing and final finishing applications. She is also the pastor of their local Friends church. With the different tasks she handles she isn’t always near the computer (cell service is unreliable) but will do her best to reply as soon as possible.

We’re blessed to be able to make this our livelihood!
