Product Description

Olive is hard, strong and heavy.

All olive is Italian, with some exceptions. Please check the dropdown list to see the species and sizes available.

All Spanish Olive sizes are freshly sawn. All other Olive sizes are part-seasoned.
Tip: Part-turn the timber and keep in a bag with its shavings for a period of time before finishing.

Some sizes are available in Venetian Olive. 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.

Please note, the image is an example of what you could create with this wood.
