Some time back I was given a large bag of BanksiaPods, I have never turned these before and considered they were to small to do an individual project. I trimmed some on the bandsaw, down four sides making them square at the end and then running them down the centre (picture 4) some I started inlaying with colored sand, hopefully for another vase later. Had no plan what to do with them, eventually cut some into large segments and held them together by laminating them in osage orange, after four weeks I now have a vase (glass insert pic 3) or a vessel with the lid. Pooir attempt at turning the knob for the top, be glad when these messy pods are gone.
