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.


Winged Pecan Wood Mortar & Pestle


Some folks are going to look at this mortar & pestle and say it looks mighty fine.  The natural colors of pecan wood along with the heavy spalting this set has really sets it off from many others.  You even have some worm damage, however slight, to add to it’s rustic appeal.  I burned three lines on the handle end of the pestle for decorative purposes only.  It makes no difference if you are a chef, home cook, herbalist, or someone who likes to grind their tea leaves, this set will be handy.  The mortar is 8” in outer diameter with an inside diameter of 5”.  The height is 3” and the depth is 2 ¼”.  The volume measures at 3 cups.  The pestle is 6 ½” long with a diameter of 1 ¼”.   All the wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and the finishing was done with shellac with a bit of walnut oil based wax mixed in.  1Apr20  VP50  $40.00 and $6.00 S&H  Shipping price listed is for within the Continental United States.  Other areas contact me with zip code for shipping cost
