Thanks for the nice replies!
 Anthony, I don't know how old this tree is, and I do believe that this is a tree genus. I believe there are many types of olea, so maybe yours is a different variety.
And thanks for the opinions on the front(s).  Thing about olive, they don't heal wounds - like ever.  So we will see how the new carvings age, and maybe do a bit more if it's not enough. 
Lucked out on the pot, it's a Horst Heinzlreiter pot, lucky to have it.

I'm with the first pic as front as well, are you growing out the primary branching to thicken them up?

I've already said it but lovely tree Judy

best regards
Herman

Thanks Herman,
Yes, I allow free growth all summer then cut back towards the end, so I'm not cutting off after growth period.  But they put on a good deal of growth this year even though it was a fairly cool temp. year here.  Next year it should go crazy, as it's not a repot year.  Glad I got those kinks in the branches early on, that is looking pretty good so far.
