Picked up a bottle opener kit and an olive turning blank from Rockler this evening on the way home from work.

Practiced on a piece of maple before turning the olive. Olive is a fun and easy wood to turn. Smells very interesting when you turn it.

Finished the handle with bees wax and some olive oil. I’m pretty new to turning and it worked out nicer than I had hoped it would.

I just love Olive Wood, looks so good! Very sturdy looking and serves a good purpose.
