African Olivewood (Olea capensis) 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 the oily surface of the wood. Olivewood needs care when drying to avoid checking or honeycombing, especially with thicker material. Glues well; pre-boring recommended.
Due to the nature of wood movement, shrinkage and expansion are possible. Please measure each piece carefully before starting any project.
Wood is a product of nature, and as such, no two pieces are alike to start with, while the same wood growing in different locales can vary greatly even though it is the exact same species.
