This is a mortal and pestal I made for a person requesting one at the last craft show. All I had big enough was a piece of Chinaberry wood that was given to me a week ago. I made both pieces from the same log but they don’t look like it. It was all the wood I had and I turned it into blanks for future projects.

I also made a Mortar out of Osage orange from another project that did not turn out so well. That is the third picture.

Another Job well done Jim. I am sure the the person you made this for will like it a lot!! How many craft shows do you attend while in AZ (is that the right state?)

Thanks for sharing

Nice Idea, to turn a little mortar.
Nice turning I’m always impressed.
Amazing the shift of color in the piece of wood.
Best thoughts my friend,

Thank you all for the nice comments!
Chuck, I plan to do at least 4 craft shows this winter around Casa Grande. I did pretty good at the first one at our clubhouse. Bracelets were selling well and then I broke both of my holding fixtures so I’m dead in the water on those. I have 5 pieces of this Chinaberry left and I will be giving instruction to a beginner here in the park so he can make something nice from that wood.
