I have turned and assembled a mechancil pencil out of Bethlehem Olivewood. This wood is my favorite due to the yin and yang qualitys of the wood. The finished that I applied is Shellawax. It was one of the first items that I turned, and truly the only other pens or pencils that compare to it, are other items made of the olivewood.
I hope you all enjoy looking at it as much as I did making it.

Thanks the the project, haven’t done olive wood yet, but now I will. I really like zebra wood, kinda of looks a bit like this wood?

I beautiful job, I’ve turned 3 or 4 Olivewood pens. But I think I like Desert Iron wood best for the striking wood.
