This is a mortar and pestle for smashed garlic. In this is made a kind of garlic sauce called “mujdei”. The mortar is made of beech and the pestle is made of oak. Both pieces of wood are from firewood pile. I used boiled linseed oil to finish than.

Thanks for watching.

Nice work! I am curious who they will change color after years of use.

Kelly, I use one at home, taken before I start turning. It is made ​​of linden wood and have it for 4 years. They caught a lemon yellow color, from garlic and olive oil … Just wash it with hot water, no dishwasher soap.
