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.

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

Exquisite Pecan Burl Mortar & Pestle

Oh, yeah.  This is definitely exquisite!  Turned from a pecan burl this has all kinds of things going for it.  The natural colors of pecan wood are already something to behold, but coming from a burl makes them even better.  There was a knot hole in the side and I sealed it up for good measure.  On the outside I used some powdered copper with clear glue.  On the inside it was done with clear glue and natural dust.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with shellac mixed with walnut oil based wax.  This combination gives the set a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  The mortar is 4 ¾” in diameter with a height of 3 ½”.  The depth is 2 ½” with a volume of 1 ¼ cups.  The pestle is 5 ¾” long and 1” in diameter.  You will find a small indentation near the lip for ease in gripping while in use.  18Mar19  VP49  $35.00 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

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
