Notes
Character / Color:
The olive tree, which takes a long time to grow and sometimes achieves a ripe old age, boasts a cultural history that reaches back to antiquity. Its very thick, hard and durable wood has an understated texture which is streaked with greenish brown veins and softened by cloud-shaped flecks. Longitudinal cuts often reveal pretty dark wavy lines. The wood´s warm golden brown tones captivate and win over the viewer.

Usage:
Turnery, furniture, inlays, sculptures
