This maple yarn holder is typical of the spinning yarn holders I make. It is used for crocheting as a way for a skein of yarn or thread to unwind neatly while being used.
The heart of this product is a quality “Lazy Susan” mechanism which allows the top disk and dowel to spin independent of the base. The Lazy Susan sits in a recess in the disks.
The holder measures 6 3/4 inches high by 5 inches in diameter. It has soft plastic feet to prevent marring and grip smooth surfaces.
The wood is finished with a satin lacquer, but may be ordered with a mineral oil and beeswax finish.
This spinning yarn holder is a great tool for knitting and crocheting and serves the same function as a yarn bowl. It can be moved with one hand. It can also be used to wind yarn.
Except for lacquer spraying and final assembly, all of the work is done on my lathe. I make these out of many different woods as with the walnut above.
