We kind of went all out on this one. I thought this olive wood cut was stunning, and deserved special treatment and attention. It has been stabilized with resin and set with over 8 ozs of beautiful robins egg blue turquoise as well as elements of white mica. the bark was left on and stabilized in strategic areas for added contrast. The pools of turquoise wrap around the edges. The higher price reflects the cost of the turquoise and extra labor. This 19 by 9 by 1.2 inch thick display platter should not be immersed in water, but it can be wiped down with a damp towel. Olive wood is very dense and stable, and it gives off a wonderful olive oil smell when being worked in the shop. It has been sealed and sanded smooth on all sides. It has incredible detail, with the heartwood contrasting with the sapwood. All naturally occuring voids have been filled.

After being sanded, the board is treated with 3 coats of General Brand Food Safe Salad Bowl Finish. Final Sanding is with 400 grit, for a smooth, aesthetic finish. With appropriate care, it will last a lifetime!!! The salad bowl finish actually sets up in the wood, and seals the natural pigments. The back side is also expertly finished, and can be used for cutting and serving.

I welcome your questions, so please feel free to contact me!!
