I made this Slimline Pen & Pencil set for my pastor as a Christmas Present. It is made from Olive wood from the Holy City of Bethlehem in Israel. The card Certificate of Authenticity further states ’ This wood is from trees which have been bearing fruit since the time of the Romans.
The certificate assures that this is authentic Bethlehem Holy Land olive wood – a natrual raw material. This wood comes from the pruning of young trees, the sprouts from the trunks of old trees, and unproductive trees.
When turning this wood the smell of the shavings is just wonderful. It is a very pleasant smelling wood while turning it.
Thanks to Delta Machinery I’m back turning wood again. I have a few more projects I want to try now. One of which is wine bottle stoppers. Never turned one before.
