A little while back, I posted a segmented turning press. I finally got to complete the project it was built to help create.
The mortar is made from Maple and Walnut. As you can see, I need to work on getting my segmented angle joints more accurate and tighter. And, learn how to align the rings properly. I did not make the pestle but I think it is Beech.
The finish is something new for me. It is “Ty Fine Finishes”. It is food safe, zero VOC and 100% organic- a combination of polymerized Flax Seed Oil and Shea Oil. The oil was given to me as a gift, so I’m not sure where to purchase it. The address on the bottle is “TYFF Ltd., 23717 Liberty West, Raymond, OH 43067”. The finish dries completely, unlike mineral oil. It has a low luster sheen.
May have to try my hand at more of these types of turning. Don’t worry Darryl, you have nothing to fear from me!!
Mimi says it works great.
Thanks for looking.
