Banksia Gigantis seed pods from Western Australia. Range from 5 to 7 inches long. The ends have been cut in preparation for mounting to a lathe. Average diameter is 2.5 inches.
These pods are an extremely unique project material. They have a rough exterior composed of small bumps and lip-like openings. Just underneath is a fuzzy brown felt like material with medium density wood below. The openings pierce to a solid half inch core. Best turned and polished on a lathe.
