I was given two Olive trees for the cost of my labour, chainsaw and trailer. The branch that this is made from had been lopped previously and had a number of new growth branches, and I was keen to see what it looked like once made into something. The Olive trees were only about 15 years old so there was not a lot of colour in the wood.
The Vase is 11.5 inches tall, 4 inches diameter and is hollowed only down to the top of the bulb. I did this because I wanted some extra weight at the bottom for more stabilisation.
The Vase is finished with Shellawax “Glow” friction polish and was sanded to 400.
Hope you like it and thanks for looking.
C & C welcome.
