About Olive Wood

Olive wood is a type of wood that comes from the olive tree, which is native to the Mediterranean region. Olive wood is known for its distinctive grain patterns, which can range from simple and straight to complex and swirling. It is a hard and dense wood that is resistant to wear and tear, making it a popular material for carving and furniture making.Olive wood is also prized for its durability and resistance to moisture, making it ideal for use in kitchen utensils and cutting boards. In addition to its practical applications, olive wood is also used for decorative purposes, such as in the production of ornamental items, religious artifacts, and jewelry.One of the unique characteristics of olive wood is its coloration, which can range from light cream to dark brown. The color is often influenced by the tree's age and the growing conditions. Olive wood is also known for its distinctive aroma, which is reminiscent of olives.Olive wood slabs are often harvested from trees that are too old to produce olives or have been damaged by disease or nature. The trees are usually pruned to keep the olives close to the ground, so long lengths of olive wood are uncommon. However, some older trees can yield planks up to three feet wide and twelve feet long. Olive wood can also be found with tiger striping and burl, which are highly sought-after by woodworkers and artisans.Common Name: Olive, Olive WoodBotanical name: Olea spp. (Olea europaea, O. capensis)Indigenous To:  Mediterranean Europe
