    Barry, well done. I like how the pics document the process as well as the finished product.

    Hey Barry, Great bowls, and a cool name as well. I got ahold of some green olive chunks recently (don't know if it was the Russian variety). It had beautiful grain and I had high hopes for it. I rough turned 3 bowls, bagged them and let them dry some, they all warped badly but were still salvageable, but all 3 blew out on final turning The wood seemed very brittle, if anyone has any tricks for turning olive, i'd love to hear them. Cheers, Barry

    Thanks folks!

    No special tricks on that olive....I just got lucky. The funniest thing is a guy from church asked if I wanted a couple pieces of olive wood. SURE says I......he brings them over and.........they were cut 4 or 5 years ago and stored outside.....punky, SPLIT, pretty ugly looking. I was able to save a few small bowls out of them....with the help of CA glue.
