Olivewood spindle blank 3 x 3 x 18
Olivewood spindle blank. Approximate blank size 3" square by 18" long. Sold individually. Wood origin: Italy.
NOTE: spindles have been air-dried for 18 months. Store in a cool, dry place to minimize the chance of cracking.
To dry the spindle, remove the wax from the side grain. Leave the wax on the end grain. Wax can be removed with a cabinet scraper or take a thin slice off each side grain on a bandsaw. Let sit in a cool dry place until it is 10% or less moisture content. This process could take a year or more.
