This is a small Tea Light made from a Banksia Nut as a bit of an experiment.
The nut is a bit like a pine cone, its full of holes and has several layers of different qualities. The outer is a hard nut like shell, underneath that is a mass of fibers and this gives way to a harder layer underneath. It’s strong enough to be turned into intricate shapes.
Warning. The dust from this is fairly toxic so use a dust mask when turning these!
