    a chunk of olive - Received!

    I have a special project and I need a piece of olive about 3" square. It is to turn a special container.

    Anybody?

    This is the best known supplier of Bethleham Olive wood.

    Searches will bring up others from California and Greece. The Greek stuff is probably the most beautiful but also most expensive.

    Carol.
    Call the Queen Creek olive mill, they may have some trimmings that will give you the size blank you need. They are the only olive grove I know of in AZ.

    Paul, you can mention religious articles, especially as they apply to woodworking.
