We have been waiting 6 years for someone to trim one of the olive trees in our park. It finally happened and I got some of the wood. This is an olive wood margarita glass I made from one of the branches. It is 6” tall and finished with Danish oil and gloss lacquer.

Cheers, Jim

What a beauty! It’s hard to beat the grain patterns of olive wood.

Just beautiful.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Jim, that is a lovely glass…again I have to to comment on the beauty of the Olive Tree Wood. Great turning. I noticed that even while still in the turning stage that the beautiful grain was visible and ready to pop.

Regards,

Cliff.

Jim, this is a beautiful piece and the wood is wonderful. The turning itself looks like a fine job of craftsmanship with all of the features being sharp and crisp. I love it.

Looks great. I never turned olive wood. Is it easy to cut?
