Can anyone post links or pictures of your own spinning wheels for reference and point out the areas that you would like to see changed or altered?

Beautiful.  
I still haven't found a picture of my oriface, but I've found a few images for you, of what would be a good oriface, for me anyway.

Don't get me wrong, I love my wheel, with it's innie oriface.  But it would be nice to have a corkscrew style too.

I'm really liking the corkscrew orifice, I'm thinking that a combination of the majacraft aura bobbins and and the bobbin and open orifice from Spinolution would be the best bets for making the whole thing more modular.

Going to do up some drawings when I have time and post here for feedback.

Cheers!

Maidens, oakMain HoldersWool carriers, poplar (I think)

Main Pillar

Secondary Pillar
I did all these yesterday afternoon, I quite like the maidens, fun turning those. I went ahead and sanded everything, then gave it a coat of polyurethane, will buff later before assembly.

Did another set of maidens today and started on spokes for the wheels, got a few done, pics later.
Plan for tomorrow, finish spokes, cut boards for outer diameter of the wheel and build jig for gluing and pinning the wheel together.
