carving olive

Because the olive is much better wood for carving, Kevin decided to work on it straight away to show us what can be done much better and nicer than on the Spruce wood. The Olive wood has a bitter taste...i tried some after Kevin told me... and he saaid ''isn't it bitter, taste it!'' haha so i did..and it is, and it has this smell i like..

As with the Spruce, starting the carving from the base up. Using different drills, brushes etc...4 Makitas were laying on the table beside him so he doesn't have to change the extensions!
