The Taming of the Wool

The second installment of the cherry stump.

This time I turned a greenwood bowl with the edge of the trunk facing out. The result was the curved outline above, and different warping as it dries. There was a lot of pressure on the natural grain so I relieved the warp stress a bit by cutting a curved slot into one side. The drying out has continued to separate the edges and warp the bowl which provides for a whole new use:

A vagrant ball of yarn can now rest easy in the bowl and feed the knitting through the slot.
