    That saw video is amazing.

    Looks like a very interesting building it's in with all the arches and such.

    What a cool trip. Thanks for the pictures!

    Nice to see where the stuff comes from. I have a Jerusalem Cross and a Rosary chaplet made from olive wood in Israel, probably in a factory just like this one, or perhaps this factory. It is very nice wood, something like basswood, I think.
    Cheers,

    The olive wood I've turned was a lot harder than basswood. Prettier grain, too.
