I had some nice chunks of wood leftover from my clock & pepper grinder projects. And you know how woodworkers hate to get rid of what looks like usable scrap. (When the pieces get too small to make a drawer knob it might be suitable for using to smoke ribs & as a last resort it goes into the fire pit on a cool evening.) I turned some nice oak into a little Mortar & Pestle. Works great for crushing aspirin or grinding cooking herbs.
The pepper grinder left me with some chunks of Mahogany which I used, along with a piece of Boxwood from somewhere, to turn into a little bowls for holding keys & change on the dresser. Friction Polish was used on these projects
