Mom asked for a yarn bowl, so I said, Why not! First large turning. Walnut and cherry glue up.

That really turned out nice. The contrasting woods add to the overall beauty. Great piece for your first large turning, it came out great.

Thanks for all the great feedback!
Punk – The layup was 8” squares and about 5” deep. The planed layered material was right at 7/8” each.
Atchison32 – The yarn groove was a drilled 3/8” hole and the loop was done with a RotoZip. That was a little tricky working on the curved surface of the bowl and trying to follow my curved tracing!
