Turned wooden mortar and pestle, handmade from salvaged Australian hardwood timber

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


This mortar and pestle has been turned from offcuts of Australian hardwood, W.A. karri, that was otherwise going to end up as firewood or landfill. It is approximately 14cm square and 4cm deep.

Both pieces have been sanded finely, and finished with a thin coat of food safe oil. The finish has a low sheen, and although smooth, you can still very much feel the grain of the timber. The mortar in particular has a beautiful deep red colour, which will be maintained for much longer if drier ingredients are used, and the pieces wiped clean with as little moisture as possible. This piece could also be used just as a decorative item.

Beautifully made - I purchased several of these for discerning friends and family who love the idea of rescuing and reusing wood that would otherwise go to waste. This is a gift that the receiver will always treasure, especially wood conisseurs
