Subject:
Russian olive mosque box... *PIC*

Michael Stafford
>A friend sent me some Russian olive wood quite a while back and it was temporarily lost in the piles of wood I have in various places in the shop.

This is the first box I have turned from this wood. It is relatively soft and was loathe to hold a bead detail under the lid which is why this box does not have one.
It does not turn as easily as true olive and did not have the pleasant scent of that wood either.

This box is 2 1/2" in diameter and 3 1/4" tall. All comments appreciated...
