Additionally, the guide holes are wide enough to handle some art and thick yarns. I did choose to use some cutting board oil on the upstanding portion (the part with the guide holes) as it was unvarnished wood. Overall, it is working GREAT! It is so much easier, sturdier, and prettier than what I have been using (a cardboard box and chopsticks or semi broken 3D printed lazy kates).
This was easy to put together and was plying yarn with in 5 mins of getting it. Have used several different bobbin types on it too
