  • Olive Wood

    Does anyone have any idea where I can get olive wood from Israle for making Christian or Jewish symbols for ornaments. We have a few, but I would like to use my scroll saw patterns to make my own. Thanks. FHN3 thanks - 2 great answers - one in Bethlehem and one where i can get almost any kind of wood.

    They don't have any very thin (ex.1/8), nor very wide (4" max), but I get my turning stock from:

    They have 1/4" and 1/2" in stock and will do custom cutting, according to their website.
    Shipping is slow, usually about 6 weeks.

    There's a fine line between woodworking and insanity, I'm just not sure which side of the line I'm on!

          Some of the older books were that way too. It's unfortunate that the printers don't take into account what those pages are for! So sorry to hear of your disappointment. However, I will have to check out that book---I didn't even know there was a circular scroll saw designs book. Share some of...

          Many patters in it I like and I'm sure I will make several BUT Fox Chapel's printing of this book absolutely SUCKS. Most of the patterns are printed so near into the binding that it is impossible to either scan to .PDF or use a copy machine. I will have to cut out each pattern separately or cut off...

          I am sure you know how important and relevant that comment is Rolf! I have seen a number of scroll sawn projects over the years at garage sales, thrift stores, etc. I know whoever made them put in a lot of...
