This is a pecan mortar and pestal I made for my friend Myron from Iowa. He has been shelling 50# of pecans and wanted a tool to grind them up in small quantities to put on ice cream.
He said it works just fine! It is finished with EEE polish and Mylands friction polish

Hi Qmoney- Myron grinds up pecans into little pieces with the mortar and pestal. I thought it would be fitting to make it out of the tree from which the pecans are grown. I only cut one tree branch this year and that 1 5/8” pestal was turned from a 4 1/2” piece.
