Shop our large collection of kiln dried Olive Wood Slabs. This hard, heavy and fine textured live edge wood turns and polishes beautifully. The heartwood is nutty brown, interlaced with fine veins of dark brown and greenish hues. The sapwood is a base of creamy yellow with similar striping. Our California Mission Olive wood is from an orchard recovery from very old orchard in San Joaquin Valley. The Olive trees were planted in 1893-1895. Olive is great for wood to display as wall art or to use for fine wood projects such as tables, clocks and epoxy resin pour projects.
