    motar and pestle

    Hey all my bro wanted me to make him a motar and pestle,as he broke the ceramic one he's had for years. he grows a lot of his own herbs and wanted one to crush them up. this is what i came up with. it's made of purple heart,maple,jacoba,and mahogany. not the best pics but o well. it's only my 2nd seg turning.

    That looks realy nice. I guess I've never thought of using wood for one of those.

    Nice Stephen. Are all those woods safe for food?

    That is a beauty. He is going to love it. I have made salad bowl sets out of all four of those woods.

    Thanks all.As i said he's had a ceramic one for years,and when he broke his, he started looking for another. He got online and found a lot of them but, the one he liked the best was made buy the shakers out of wood. As he knows i have a lathe and have been trying to learn how to do these seg turnings,he asked if i'd give it a try. I didn't even think about being food sake,as he will just be crushing dryed herbs.

    Great colours Stephen!! And a good looking set of kitchen tools. If that's only your second segmented turning you're well ahead of the learning curve.

    cheers eh?

    Nicely done, Stephen. A mortar and pestle was one of the first things I ever turned...way back in high school. My sister still has it.
