Olivewood…did you know?

The Olive tree is a very small tree found growing in coastal Mediterranean regions, this tree is famous for the oil that can be produced from it!  It is a very high quality wood with a strong overall density.  It is rich in color and makes beautiful decorative pieces.  Olivewood has an odor that smells slightly sweet, but can be very noticable when turning or splitting wood.  The wood is very oily and dense making it very difficult to dry.  This would is known for it’s imperfections that can be frequently found along with bark pockets.  This types of imperfections is what gives this wood character and uniqueness to any project.  These are typically very small trees so large boards are not typically found.  If you have any further questions or would like more information about Olivewood feel free to contact us anytime.
