Real Yellowwood is the national tree of South Africa and is protected there. The timber is seldom seen. It is, of course, yellow and very fine grain with subtle figure. The cap was made from another S. African native tree.  This rarely seen olive species is found mostly in South Africa.  It is a gnarly tree that is slow growing with a very dense, fine grained wood.  The wood is harder and more lustrous than the common olive, with beautiful dark veins and a pleasant smell.
