Because there are so few new threads today, here is an old project of mine as a fill-in.

That's a beauty Harry. The finish is particularly nice. Looking up Banksia, I was surprised to see that mostly it occurs as bushes, and only a couple that will grow as a tree. Is it more common in OZ? Seems the pods are used for turning.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Beautiful work Harry! Thanks for the tutorial, very well done as always. I have never heard of Banksia. I love discovering new woods.

The Banksia tree which is common here was growing on the grounds where my son worked and it was in the way and so cut down. Decent size branches were brought for me and I was told that it was Sheoak but after cutting into useful pieces my friend John assured me that it was Banksia.
The first shot shows one of the logs about to go to my friend John to cut up using one of his chain saws . The second shows the result at the rear of the shelf.
