I created the font Simple Spindle using the website FontStruct where fonts are made using only geometrical shapes. Once a font is constructed, it can be displayed on the site and made available for others to download and use. Below is the blurb I wrote on FontStruct that describes my creation.  

This ornate typeface was designed with the intention to give every part of a letterform some curve. The end result was a typeface that mirrored the rounded shape of old-fashioned wood spindles like one might find on an antique dinning chair or an elaborate staircase in an ancestry home. Spindles like these were handcrafted and born from the finest lumber a proud wood worker could find. This same type of pride went into the crafting of Simple Spindle.
