All kinds of things can be used as a surface to work a supported spindle

Metal tipped spindles work great on metal, glass, porcelain, high gloss wood like khohloma other types I did not test, they may have not hard enough surface and using khohloma would be stretching the durability of the surface. Wooden bowls get scratched. Here is an example of tools of the trade. I persomaly prever with metal tipped spindled polished metal or glass. Cheap and universal. Thrifst store or garage sales is my kind of thing to find these.
