Product Information:

These pods are the fruit of the banksia tree in Australia. They vary in size with seed pockets running out from a solid center. They turn well and can be used to make interesting projects. They can be cut into slabs for very stunning effects. These pods can create a lot of dust when turned, so good ventilation and adequate dust protection are essential. Also, the pods can be quite hard, so sharp tools should be used to work with them.

  • Popular for making handles, clock bases, and dried flower vases
  • Pods are hard and solid
  • Seed pod cavities running from the outside toward the center core
  • Woodturners throughout the world value Banksia pods for making ornamental objects
  • A truly renewable resource, since no trees are cut

  • Due to the nature of wood movement, shrinkage and expansion are possible. Please measure each piece carefully before starting any project.

    Wood is a product of nature, and as such, no two pieces are alike to start with, while the same wood growing in different locales can vary greatly even though it is the exact same species.
