''One piece of log/trunk'' challenge

These projects were made of one piece of olive wood log, some 2m long, 12-14cm in diameter. I cut it in three parts and cliced them into 16-18mm boards. I removed bark and squared rest of boards available. Finaly I glued them to usable sizes for each various project. Since it is olive wood, I tried to make something with olive/see/marine/coast motives.
So, I came up with :

Fish shaped cutting board
Stylized artistic cruise ship candle holder
Olive shaped napkin holder
Olive tree leaf shaped tray
Coasters – normal …(later I realised that I should make them shell shaped)

Finish – food friendly wood oil.

From log to project, way to go, to most people logs like that are just firewood stock. Nice save.
