Some of the pics of the tools are a little scary, particularly the pic of the guy crosscutting 3/4" blanks with a table saw with the blade 6" above the table and hes doing it freehand against the fence with no safety equipment!!!!

That'll be thr guy with 3 fingers doing a safety video...

I measured it once, and I cut it twice, and it's still too short......

Thought folks might notice folly of Israeli olive wood production from that link. Yes olives grown in Israel, but not on scale with other olive producing Mediterranean countries.

How does olive wood stacked in a cave get air circulation? What is the MC of Israeli olive wood after kiln process? You can bet Israeli not operating that table saw.

Olive trees pruned every other year. So marketable wood harvested almost nil. If Google olive wood will see artisans and small production companies make up the market for it. Not much quality control in producing marketable olive wood.
