Sorry, this item sold. Have TwistedTimber make something just for you, or try these other items:
This beautiful yarn bowl was made at the suggestion of a fellow Etsy store owner, ReNeau at KnittingbyReNeau. She liked the idea of having a wooden one that is indestructible as well as needing one that would hold more than one roll of yarn. I designed the bowl and decided to make it from segmented pieces. There are 73 individual pieces of Maple and beautiful Purpleheart wood that are cut to the exact shape necessary, glued into rings, stacked and then the entire piece is turned on my lathe. I left the walls a little bit thick, approximately 3/8 inch, so that the piece would be stable on a table or couch. I also designed it with a broad base for the same reason. I hand carved the “J” for the yarn to pass through and added two additional holes to hold the needles when not knitting. I also curved the top edge in slightly so that the yarn would not pop out of the bowl. The top edge is beveled inward.
The bowl stands approximately 5 1/4 inches tall and the opening is approximately 5 1/2 inches, large enough to hold two rolls of yarn. It has been finished with a cellulose sealer and several coats of lacquer which is not only durable but adds a rich, glossy luster to the piece. The piece is virtually indestructible and will last a lifetime. I have signed and dated the bowl.
This bowl can be made with pretty much any combination of wood so custom orders are welcome. Simply email me.
