A mortar and pestle has been on my to-do list for a long time. Finally, I found my “round-2-it”. I did have to look up which piece was the mortar and which was the pestle. It turns out that the mortar is the dish part.
I choose hard maple as a dense, non toxic wood. I eliminated others such as walnut and laburnum since they are toxic. I did not want any risk of anything bleeding out of the wood.
To finish, I did the final sanding with a 25-75 mix of beeswax and mineral oil.
