I was inspired by @Graydog and his Olive Wood Again,,,,,,,,Nice Grain! post. So I chucked up some olive wood that I've had for a while. I started two brush handles but the other one ended up having a crack in it, I determined it wasn't worth saving. This one however is coming along quite nicely so far. I will most likely be putting a 24mm knot from Maggards in it.
