I am of beginner/intermediate skill with my lathe. I would say this to be a realatively easy project, basically a bowl and a spindle. I would suggest that as with any wood that is going to come into contact with food you use a wood that is fine grain and has the smallest pores possible. Additionally the wood you choose shouldn’t have any sort of toxic properties. Hard maple for example comes to mind here.
I think lamination would be okay, although if used and exposed to moisture you could possibly end up with uneven expansion like what has happened with the knot in the P&M you currently have.
I would give it a shot and let us know how it turns out!
