Russian Olivewood is an excellent choice for woodworking projects such as woodturning, carving, pens, handles, making small figurines or to gradually use as stock for small projects and insets.
Highly prized for its beautiful coloring and exceptional grain, Russian Olivewood is a favorite of woodworkers. The wood is hard and strong, and has superior working characteristics, making it well suited for wood turning, splicing and carving.
What makes this hardwood so unique is the extraordinary grain pattern of each individual piece, as well as the distinctive and pleasing fragrance that it gives off. It even becomes darker, richer, and more beautiful in color as it ages. It finishes very smoothly, to a high polish.
