BAnksia pod bowl *PIC*

John Lucas
>I've always wanted to do this. I bought these Banksia pods from Choice Woods a year ago and now I'm finally getting around to playing with them. This is about 6" long 2 1/2 wide and 1/4" or so thick. I wasn't sure how strong this stuff is so I didn't make it very thin.

It interesting in that it cuts like it's hard wood but dent's like soft wood. I reverse turned it by putting a piece of thin foam between my chuck and the bowl. The chuck dented the wood slightly so I had to sand it out by hand.
