Frequently bought together:
Woodcraft has brought together the most exceptional stock of domestic and exotic hardwood knife scale blanks-1 thick solid stock or matching 3/8 pieces. Each piece was selected for its striking figure and milled to sizes that make the knife making process easy and efficient with minimal waste. African Olive wood heartwood is often pale to medium brown with irregular streaks that vary from brown to dark brown and dark grey. The sapwood is generally pale yellow. Wood has excellent strength properties. Material can be difficult to work due to interlocked grain and the oily surface of the wood. Olive wood needs care when drying to avoid checking or honeycombing, especially with thicker material. Glues well pre-boring recommended. Due to the nature of wood movement, shrinkage and expansion are possible. Please measure each piece carefully before starting any project. Wood is a product of nature, and as such, no two pieces are alike to start with, while the same wood growing in different locales can vary greatly even though it is the exact same species. « lessView AllClose
