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

I’ve got to get my lathe set up so I can make one of these for my wife…

Keep up the good work.

I like it! Simple, graceful and beautiful, too.

Great looking bowl. My aunt would love one of those. I know what she is getting for Christmas this year.
How did you cut the slot?

How did you cut the yarn groove on the side?

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!

Very pretty bowl! Attractive wood mix, great shape and finish. I’m sure she loves it. Great job!
