Hi,I'm back in blighty with a bit of olive wood that I bought back with me to play with and I got my chisels out and made a basic ashtray,loved working it,it cuts lovely,has sanded perfectly bringing out all the grain beautifully (I don't have a lathe),I was wondering if anyone can tell me the best way to polish it? I'm assuming that olive oil would do it?
Thanks!

Olive oil would do fine and give you a Matt patina.  Linseed would bring out some lovely grain colours.
