I posted this over on another forum, thought would share with family and friends here was well.... We did our usual Farmer's Market yesterday... the day was beautiful, cool and mostly sunny... the crowd started slow as did the sales, but built as the day moved along... I made these mortar and pestles for this show thinking that the previous show the one I had sold within 15 minutes of the day starting... but seems like the product du jour yesterday was wine glasses, bowls and pepper mills.
These are made from 1. Cherry wood both mortar and pestle,
2. Red Oak mortar and white oak burl pestle,
3. White oak burl and white oak pestle.
I guess it just wasn't a mortar day... they all came home with me.
1 & 2 are about 6" diameter x about 2 1/2 - 3 inches high and the pestles are bout 6 or 7 inches long
3 is about 4" diameter by about 5" high with a 7 inch pestle.
All are finished with Dr. Woodshop's Wood Turner Finish.
