These are of Viking origin and are an alternative to a coopered vessel. A piece of green (unseasoned) timber is hollowed out into a tube. Then a groove is cut near the bottom to accept the base. A dry timber base is made to fit loosely, then as the tube shrinks it tightens onto the base. Although the fit is close, it is not watertight, but very good for dry goods etc.

You use these really simply for first removing the papery skin on a garlic clove, and then to mash the flesh with salt. No messy cleaning out holes full of garlic mush!
They are made from beautiful spalted beech in Strid Wood on my pole lathe.
They cost £5 plus £2 p&p (by First Class Post Office mail)
