Old wooden spools and bobbins from textile plants are all over the place online. Originally made during the Industrial Revolution in Victorian times, these old spools were usually made from hard woods like ash or birch. These types of woods were common in the New England area of the United States where many textiles mills flourished at that time. Often, each mill had its own unique design for their spools. If you look around you will see that some are more attractive than others.
Today some crafters like the old wooden spools to make candlesticks or lamps. However interesting they are, and I think they are so cool, there are tons of them available for sale online. I've seen large bins of them at salvage shops. Most of them go for under ten dollars a piece. Check around online to see what spools similar to your own are going for.
