Sweet. Very nice.

Is the mortar being bored by a forstner bit that you then rounded the bottom with turning tools, or do you have some really cool rounded mortar bit?

Thanks! I used a forstner bit to get out most of the hole. I rounded out the inside with a gouge and scraper. Sandpaper is still my main tool. It was fun.

My wife asked if I could make her one of these the other day. Told her not sure about the wood. Now I know and will have to try it out. Thanks for the post. You just gave me another “honey do”. Did I say thanks? haha

Great job. Keep it up.
