back to 1/12th turnings
Managed to get some more Bethlehem Olivewood, I do enjoy turning this wood, it has a wonderful grain, here we have a mortar & pestle and a pill silverer which I have based on a 19th century antique one.
Apothecaries having fashioned their pills would coat them with silver by placing them in these containers with a silver powder. Gently rolling the pills within the sealed sphere with a gum resin would cover them, ready for bottling.
