In light of my comment on your last post. This is my kind of cutting board!

Those are truely beautiful cutting boards. I have used olive wood in the past to make pens and love to work with that species. I am looking for a source of olive wood in board form so I can make some cutting boards as Christmas gifts. Do you have any suggestions for this ? Do you use a local distributor or do you purchase online?
Thanks for any help and keep up the good work.

Thanks for the info Gerry, I’ve contacted them to see if they can ship to the states.
Again, I’m impressed and inspired by your work.

Beatiful boards. Love the grain. And love the rustic too. The olive wood is awesome!
