Wild Grown Olive Wood!
One of our most beloved and beautiful woods is certainly olive wood, not the common species, growing fast in Portugal, Spain or Italy, nearly always grained boringly and coarsely. This olive wood comes from trees, which were often bred and artificially fertilized for this purpose and therefore mostly show little exciting grain and are straight grown. Our olive wood, like all our other woods, is carefully hand-picked and comes from wild grown olive trees that are often centuries old, which the Venetians planted at the Mediterranean Sea in the 16th century. Even today, they are still different from all other varieties of olive trees, as they grow slowly and devoured, making their wood something very special, the pictures show this. We now have a few tons of them in stock again, and since we generally only offer dry wood to our customers, ready for immediate working, many of these pieces of olive wood will remain in our shelves for a few more years until they are slowly and gently dried to such an extent that we can sell them with a clear conscience. This distinguishes our business from the peasant competitors who sell fresh wood, with whom you will experience unpleasant surprises, as the wet wood will warp and tear.
