I’ve recently taken up woodturning and I’m learning my way, with plenty of “learning experiences” that have ended up as scrap. Here is one of my first ‘keepers’, a small mortar bowl and lid made from a laminated blank of maple sandwiched by cherry, with a walnut pestle.
I particularly like the natural dark streak in the maple that enhances the craft look to the bowl. Finished with shellac.
It is the right size for grinding up small amounts of herbs etc when I am doing prep chef duty.
