Item details

Custom Yarn Bowl/ Wooden Yarn bowl/ Knitting Bowl/ Yarn Bowl Wood/ Large Yarn Bowl/ Gift for Knitters/ Wood Gift/ Hand Turned/ Hand Carved

Free Shipping.

Available in regular, unfumed, Oak, If you prefer a lighter colour. Or fumed Oak if you like the darker one.

Available in any size up to 11" in diameter. Oak, at the moment, is running at $6.50 per inch.

Needle holes can be added, at no extra cost, just let me know if and where on the bowl you'd like them.

The diameter is taken at the time of making. As these are green turned, finished and then allowed to dry they can be more or less oval, with an undulating rim and soft texture.

I often have bowls made and ready to ship in Oak and other wood species, so please check out my shop listings.

Other species may be available in custom sizes, please ask about availability if you would like something different. Prices will vary.

Nostepinne and yarn not included.

PLEASE NOTE: We need at least 2 weeks lead time to the shipping date on one of these bowls. That means from the date of ordering to actual delivery will be @ 15 - 20 days. Depending on size and availability of timber.

Fuming Oak with Ammonia was popular at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century among the Arts and Crafts movement and with Mission style furniture in the US.

These, like most of my bowls, are turned green to finish and then allowed to dry. Which makes them slightly oval with an undulating rim. They are then hand carved before being placed in a fuming chamber. The ammonia reacts with the tannins in the Oak and darkens, depending on the tannin levels. The heartwood turning a very dark brown, almost completely black, and the sapwood taking on a light nut brown colour.
The bowl is then left to dry further and off-gas (it doesn't smell of ammonia at all) before being finished with several coats of Linseed Oil and a natural Carnauba and Beeswax finish, which gives it an easily maintained soft sheen.

My makers mark (MDW) on the bottom, is in Ogham Script. A 4th century inscription alphabet found in Ireland, Scotland & Wales.
