  • O.C.D. OLIVE COMPULSIVE DISORDER Scroll saw Vase by BazzA.
    Pretty Funky Dont You Think ! Made from Tunisian Wild Olive Really dense with stunning Grain .
    Soon as I saw this Beautiful timber for sale I just had to buy it, in fact I bought all seven / 6 foot Live edge slabs .
    One of the most amazing timbers I have used but it does come with its own problems in both cutting and joining and with joining its advised you use a Asitone before glue up. A lot of work to get it right but very rewarding.
    Hope you find this a interesting project & Thanks for checking it out Regards Bazz.

Very nice looking wood and I like how you made this one too.
The wood almost looks like some kind of stone.

That Tunisian olive is fantastic and your work is very interesting. I couldn’t agree more with your byline.

Thanks to all your comments so pleased you like my project. Had great fun making this although it came with a few problems it was all worth it. The Vase has a great Marble effect it really smells of Olive Oil and is quite damp inside. It does not suffer from burns when you cut it or router it and is fine on the band saw but not so clever on the scroll saw. All sanded down finished off with 0000 grade steel wool Danish oil beeswax and a palm finishing wax. I have started making a number of cheese paddle boards with this Olive and they are starting to look great.Thanks and Kind Regards Bazz.
