Nature never ceases to amaze me.
Even in it’s untouched form I find these pods beautiful.
This is the first Banksia pod I have turned but I plan to turn many more.
I got the idea from watching Woodturners Work shop w/Tim Yoder (Great show).
The tenon of the rim is a piece of Cherry. The base and finial ares Bacote.
I used a finish of 1 prt BLO – 1prt Shellac – 1prt Denatured Alcohol.
Very fun project.
Thanks for looking.
