Wild Olive wood is wood that grows from the Olive tree root that has been cut for some time. These shoots grow all around the stump bark, dozens of shoots come out like bamboo cane, with time, the weaker ones die off and the strongest shoots develop into straight limbs reaching a hight of 5 meters or so and a diameter of 6" or so on the most mature shoots.
They still produce small olives that are useless for anything, is mostly bone and skin, sour as hell...!
These wild shoots are nuisance for the property owner, they are considered a weed and therefore poisoned to control them.
The wild Olive wood is very dense and very strong with great flexibility, the heartwood is always small in diameter and the grains seem to be tighter than the normal Olive wood. This wood also has lots of grain in parts of the sapwood, from curls to fiddleback these wood effects become more noticeable after the wood is coated with something.
Thank you for visiting...!
