I made this little yarn bowl the other day but then waited several days before I finally cut the slot and drilled the hole in it. It is 5” across and 4” high, I left the bottom and sides thick to help keep it still. To cut the slot I drilled a series of holes that connected to the main 3/4” hole then cut the slot with a coping saw. After it was cut I trued it up with rasps and files then sanded smooth.

Very nice. I assume that the slot is to allow the yarn to unravel through, is that right? Thanks for sharing. My knitting wife might like one of these also. Got a pic of it in use?

Thanks Steve, no pics of it in use but it is simple enough a ball of yarn in the bowl the running end fed through the hole is all it is. The slot is an extra a simple hole drilled in the side would work but the slot makes it easy to thread the yarn when you are ready.
