Yeah. I like the olivewood a lot!
The inlay done with the same wood is also very nice.
How much will it darken with the oil finish?
I need your help. I can't possibly make all the mistakes myself!

Thanks!

I haven't played too much with the finish yet, but it does seem like it will darken a moderate amount. It seems like an easy wood to polish to a nice sheen, so I'm expecting the tru-oil to go on nicely.
