Hello everyone.

I’m so glad I finally posting this video. I had and idea to make something for a while but lately I’m under so much work that I coud’t handle it. 😀 There are new goals for upcoming year there will be more time for what I really like. Woodworking and making videos.

Story

Some months ago I went to get some lumber so I have enough on stock and it was just by luck that my lumber guy had a yearly deliver from South of Italy ( Sicilia) and becose he knows that I’m exotic wood freak he invite me to back of the lumber yard and there under some covers there it was. I couldn’t belive it slabs ware up to 70 cm wide and up to 3m long. Newer I have seen olive slabs this big. Becose if there are olive trees this big they are still in the soil living and they are 300-400 years old and more.

I was lucky. Working with this olive wood was truly a pleasure. It’s so nice to cut and plane. Beside this it has super nice smell when you cutting etc.

Becose of some client almost all of the olive oil slab was used only small part remained and I was keeping it to the fev days ago.

I have an idea to make another table similar in previous design.
Unfortunately pice was around 1m long and 28 cm wide / 5 cm thick.

So in order to have enough material I rip it and split it in two.

Table top is 24mm thick. It could be thicker but I like it as it is.
I beveled the edges so it looks super thin.
I think it gives more elegant look.
Nevertheless coffee table is sturdy and stable.

Becouse of the design of coffee table and reference to my other video ( Tony stark style coffee table)

I think Tony Stark wouldn’t mind to have this olive wood table named after him 😉

This olive table is 85 cm long 56 cm wide and 48 tall.
For the base I used beautiful American walnut that I had some on stock and main support is strong policarbonate, but I think you already know that 🙂

Sorry guys for my absence.. New year new goals.. I already working on new video you can aspect it soon.
