This bowl is 8” D x 4” H (as requested by the customer)
I chose to use Rosewood for it’s density and beauty. The customer told me what she wanted and left it to me how to make it. The purpose of the cutout slot in the bowl is so she can put a ball of yarn in it and thread the strand of yarn through the slot and knit away pulling yarn up as needed. The reason for a slot instead of a hole is so she can change color of yarn without cutting it. Make sense? It was difficult to cut the slot smoothly as I couldn’t put it over my scroll saw head. I had to carefully cut it by hand and sand the surfaces smoothly so the yarn strands will not catch.
I am sure I will be contacted by some of her crocheting buddies for something similar. That’s ok, I’ve got it under my belt now!
Comments and critiques welcomed and appreciated!
Edit: Added photo of unfinished slab of Rosewood that is pictured under the bowl. Slab is 24” at widest and 1” thick. I have several different thicknesses.
Edit#2: This could also be used for knitting!
