Well this one kind of has me stumped. A lady friend of mine has this and thinks it was something used on an ox, but I don't think so. Looks to be something to pound or grind something. Anyone???

    That's the only pic I have and this is what I was told: The top piece measures 15 inches long and 1 1/2 inch thick. The round one at the bottom measures 11 1/2 inches long and almost 2 inches wide and it's hollow, the top one is solid wood. I think the bottom piece must be bamboo.
