These are very nice. I've done a little woodturning myself but haven't made anything as detailed as this. What kind of wood is it? I really like the grain...

I love them too, and I'd also like to know what wood was used.  Is it olive wood?

Husband says thankyou (O:
The wood is spalted ash which means the black lines in it are caused by a fungus. This was an accident but looks good - the wood was left outside covered up so needs to be damp but not wet and not get so mouldy that it goes rotton. It was supposed to be a practice for his very first go but turned out amazing!
