Olive wood chopping board advice?

i

Having tried several bamboo and lesser quality woods with no success in the past I am thinking of getting some olive wood chopping boards for everyday use at home. These are one whole slice of wood which has been smoothed and varnished rather than bits of wood glued together. I love the pattern and colour of olive wood however my main aim is to buy chopping boards which are resistant and will endure being scrubbed with a sponge and washing up liquid and then rinsed and rested upright in order to dry. Is olive one such type of wood?
