'Bosveld Olyf' is the local version of the beautiful Wild Olive species of wood. It is a great wood to work with, and has an enchanting smell when turned on the lathe. The timber is very stable and will last for years to come.
Stock dependant, we normally include a small sample of balm that can be used to nourish the wood, this is actually an aftershave balm made from tallow, so feel free to try it on your face also, we discovered its amazing qualities for wood preservation by chance, but now it is our favourite medium to use on interior and vintage wooden items.
