Yarn bowls are a popular item, so I turned out four more, bringing my total over the last couple of years to 60.

These are all made from domestic woods (cherry, maple, and walnut), about 6-1/2 inches tall and 6-1/2 inches in diameter. These all have floating base bottoms to reduce the possibility of cracking.

These are all shown with an (optional) Nostepinne, which is Scandinavian for ‘nest stick’. The Nostepinne is a tapered stick used to wind yarn into a tight ball.

I like those, I do yarn bowes from time to time though it has been a while. The yarn opening looks smooth and contour how is the best way to be consistnt and accurate cutting the openings? do you use a jig?

These are excellent looking yarn bowls. I wish I knew someone into it so I could give it a try.
Is there a rule of thumb as to the size of hole, dimension, or shape of the opening?

Not that I know of … I just took a shot in the dark on that. My wife and her friends liked the first couple of yarn bowls I turned, so I stayed with what I was doing!
