Most notably our dear friends and adopted family in Fredricksburg, Tx, Barron (aka Smitty) and Natalie Smith, who sent me two Banksia nuts. As you can see they are very unusal and I discovered popular amongst woodturners. I turned vases with both nuts. I found it fun to work with though a be messy, and really like the results. The pictured is my initial creation and I just finish a second piece includes torquise inlay for a nice accent.
