turning olive wood

Bev Thomas
>I am turning a pen with olive wood. Usually I apply about 5 coats of polish but with the olive I get to the 3rd and it starts getting sticky instead of hardening. I've tried to find information re properties of the wood (i.e. is it oily?) but I'm not getting too far. Anybody have any ideas? Thanks
