Pestle and mortars are usually used to crush herbs up for cooking. A lot of people think that wooden ones aren't practical but they are because the crushing is done on the inside which is all end grain and is the hardest part of any log. This set is made from pear wood. The set is very durable as well as attractive.
The pestle doesn't quite match the mortar as well as I would like because the two pieces came from separate trees, although they are still the same type of wood. The mortar is also slightly spalted causing beautiful grey streaks in one side of it. Spalting is a fungus that causes stripes and unique colors to appear in a wood usually after a tree has fallen.
