This is a yarn bowl that I was asked to make for the wife of an LJ friend of mine. I have never heard of a yarn bowl before so I had to see some designs here on Lumberjocks and decided on this groove pattern.
It is turned long grain from a spalted beech log because I thought it would be stronger in the cut area if the grain was not going sideways. I left the bottom thicker than I usually do for weight – so it could not be pulled over easily ( what do I know about yarn spooling? ). That made that thick part crack a bit so I filled the cracks and finished the bowl.
It is 5 1/2” diameter and 5 1/4” high and finished with satin lacquer.
