Product Description

Olive is hard, strong and heavy.

All olive is Italian, with some exceptions.

The following sizes are Spanish Olive, which is fresh sawn:
- 5 x 5 x 2
- 6 x 6 x 2.5
- 3 x 3 x 12

Tip: Part-turn the timber and keep in a bag with its shavings for a period of time before finishing.

The following sizes are Venetian:
- 3.5 x 3.5 x 6
- 3.5 x 3.5 x 8
- 3.5 x 3.5 x 12

This timber is from Corfu, but can be turned 'venetian' as Corfu was administered by Venice hundreds of years ago.

The wood has good wearing properties and resistance to abrasion because of its interlocked grain and twisty nature it does not respond particularly well to hand tools, and has a moderate blunting effect on cutters. Olive does, however, turn well because of its waxy lustre it polishes to an excellent finish.
