Made from Manitoba Maple, also called Box Elder in the US, even though its not boxwood or elder.

I got this from a tree that blew over in a wind storm. It was around 16 inches in diameter. I chain sawed it up in September and rough turned it. It then sat for a few months till dry. As it dries it warps so back on the lathe it goes and is turned to its final size. I sanded it up to 1000 grit sandpaper and buffed it with Tripoli. I then cut the hole and slot and sanded them too. Then two coats of tung oil and a final buffing with Carnauba wax.

I made the sides and bottom thick for added weight, making it very stable when pulling yarn through the hole.

I finished it with Tung Oil and buffed it smooth as glass so the yarn flows freely without snagging.

This bowl is a great gift for knitters or crocheters and will be enjoyed for generations.
