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.
