Mortars & Pestles

I finally decided that these unique pieces deserved their own section.  Which, of course means I need to make even more of them from a variety of woods.  And, that I will do.  After all, they are fun to make!  From the marketing aspect they are generally fast sellers.  I hope you enjoy the variety that I have to offer.


Unique Pecan Mortar & Pestle


This mortar and pestle set is certainly unique in design when you compare it to the sets that I normally turn.  Of course with it turned from beautiful pecan wood, that alone makes it special in it’s own way.  Sometimes I just feel like doing something in a different style and you just never know what will happen.  The mortar has an outside diameter of 4 ¾” and inner at 3 ¾”.  The height is 3 ¼” and depth comes to 2 ½”.  The capacity comes to 2 cups.  The pestle is 5 ¼” long and 1 ½” in diameter on the business end.  All the wood was first sealed with food grade walnut oil.  The finishing was done with a walnut oil/shellac mix.  The gives the set a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  It makes no difference if you are a professional chef or home cook who wants a beautiful utensil added to the kitchen, this set will come in handy for you.  6Nov18  VP43  $32.50 with Free Shipping within Continental United States


Splendid Pecan Mortar & Pestle


Oh, the color of pecan wood can simply be splendid looking!  The wood this mortar and pestle set was turned from is such a good example of that.  While shaping the mortar I decided to give it a bit of a flare at the base.  Also, I burned two lines on the outside just for decorative purposes.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a walnut oil based wax.  The mortar is 5” in diameter, 2 ¾” high and 1 ¾” deep.  The volume measured at 1 cup.  The pestle is 1” in diameter with a length of 5”.  This beautiful set will come in handy whether you are a professional chef or the household cook.  I use a similar set in my kitchen.  13Mar18  VP41  $30.00 and $10.00 S&H
