These are two yarn bowls I made for the March park sale. They are made from one mesquite branch and they have quite a bit of sap wood on them in order to maintain the largest diameter possible
They are 4 1/2” inside and 6” high and finished with satin poly.
One sold today…so I’ll have to make more for the sale!

Cheers, Jim

Mom would have loved something like this. She loved to knit, but wasn’t so fond of chasing yarn. I’m thinking the little old ladies are gonna swarm ya.

Well done Jim, and very practical too.
I’m predicting that these will sell well, so you might want to make a few more. ;)
