One of the stages of the processing process is drying wood, which takes a long time, dry it very slowly at low temperature, so that in any case not to deform the wood. The high density and hardness of wood makes it difficult to cut, only high-quality tools and professional approach are needed.

Olive wood is well treated with paints, varnishes. Tools water-based is typically not used, as there can be stains on the material to be deleted must be first primed surface.
