Product Information:

African olivewood (olea capensis) The heartwood is often pale to medium brown with irregular streaks that vary from brown to dark-brown and dark grey. The sapwood is generally pale yellow. Wood has excellent strength properties. Material can be difficult to work due to interlocked grain and oily surface of the wood. Olivewood needs care when drying to avoid checking or honeycombing, especially with thicker material. Glues well, recommended pre-boring needed when nailing. Moderate blunting effect to cutting tools. Polishes up well and gives a smooth even finish. Olivewood is used for sculpture and carving work, decorative turnings, inlay, and high end custom furniture.Larger blocks are +- 1/4" of size listed, smaller blocks +- 1/8". Spindle stock (1 1/2" - 2") dimensions are +-1/8". Grain runs with the longest dimension.
