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 fibres and this gives way to a harder layer underneath. Its strong enough to be turned into intricate shapes.

Warning. The dust from this is fairly toxic so use a dust mask when turning these!
