The olive scales are amazing. Nice work! Did you harvest the wood for the scales or purchase it?

I would definitely love to hear more about the wild Olive scales. We have a few different woods that can be referred to as wild olive that I have never paid any mind to but if it turns out to be that it looks like those scales I may have to think twice!
