Bottle Stopper in Wild Olivewood

$32.95

The Stopper:

Classic chrome bottle stopper with tapered design to fit nearly all any bottle. Rubber rings ensure a tight seal. A beautiful stopper from any angle. Gorgeous spalting and burl with a wide range of shades in brown, yellow and orange.

The Species:
Typically a cinnamon brown, heartwood color can be highly variable, ranging from a light brown to a deep, russet brown. Grain tends to be minimal, but darker streaks or swirled grain is occasionally present. Sharply demarcated sapwood is pale yellow. Overall appearance is very similar to Honduran Rosewood.

Olive is sometimes figured with curly or wavy grain, burl, or wild grain.  Because of the fruit’s economic importance, trees aren’t felled for lumber and its scarcity makes it valuable for working. What makes this hardwood so unique is the extraordinary grain pattern of each individual piece, as well as the distinctive and inviting fragrance that it gives off. It even becomes darker, richer,  and more beautiful in color as it ages! Occasionally available from wild trees, like this lumber.

The Process:
The hand selected pieces for this pen were turned by Jack D. Ciallella on a lathe. They were sanded through several grits of sandpaper until perfectly smooth. The wood is then finished with boiled linseed oil, friction polish and wax, being buffed to a satin gloss.
