Working on a live edge bench incorporating some olive ash. Occurring more frequently in older European ash, olive ash is a darkening of the heartwood to a similar tone and grain to olive wood. The contrast in appearance with the more familiar pale straw colour of ash timber is sought after by wood turners ….. and furniture makers.
The olive ash in this piece swirls through long stretcher and onto the top face where dovetail halving joint meets the short tie which joins the legs. The ash used for the ties is chosen so that the olive ash connects to olive ash.
This one is already sold but if you’d like one (with or without olive ash) please get in touch.
