Are there any members from Western Australian out there who can lay their hands on Banksia Grandis seed pods?

They are fantastic for stick toppers.

Willing to pay all costs.

Have other members ever used them????

I searched member by location and entered "AU." The search yielded only you and AussieSticker. We might try other searches. You may wish to message AussieSticker.

The seed pods mould make great toppers, based on your photo.

Looked the pods up on the net.

suprised at whats been done to them.Very nice woodturning and carvings.

I have seem some in a botanical garden in the canary isles never knew what they where,

They should make a interesting topper a good talking point for people when they see it.

Will have to shop around on ebay they seem to sell everything

any success.

You fellows from Oz have some amazing wood, completely unlike anything in No. Am. that I know about. I'm envious.

What I'd like more is a few hazel or blackthorn copices!!!!! You NAs and Poms have so

much more in the way of readily accessable timber. Boxwood would be a blessing too!

Cobalt thanks for heads up. I will make some enquiries.

Cheers
