Olive wood is just an amazing wood. I lived in Riverside Cty near Lake Elsinore and had 8 Olive trees on the property before I had gotten into woodworking. Apparently the area was a large grove years ago. Cut those down to create a lawn and gave it all away to friends for firewood. Ended up using an axe to take them down as it would tear up the chainsaw I had. I can’t believe I gave it all away, but at the time I had no garage and no concept of what it cost to buy it as a woodworker. Live and learn and lament.

Very nice board, loving the live edge on that! I had to look at our profile when I saw you had finished the edges of your live edge olivewood slab with LIVOS. I would assume you went to KJP?
