Nice turning. Like others, I love cherry.

It is meant to look like a small mallet in a bowl.

A hundred years ago, I expect these were common, especially in pharmacies.

I remember my high school chemistry lab had a set.

My wife bought a stone set, but it does not get much use.

Wiki definition of mortar and pestle.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mortar_and_pestle

"The mortar is a bowl, typically made of hard wood, ceramic or stone. The pestle is a heavy club-shaped object, the end of which is used for crushing and grinding."

I wasn't for sure how the pestle should look, but after searching on the web, I saw various types with the main thing a large part on the bottom for crushing. Several on the web looked like minature baseball bats, so I thought I'd go another direction. Thanks for looking. It probably could be used for a mallet in the kitchen in things get out of line. LOL
