August 7, 2012 Banksia Pods...They are Quite Nifty!

Mr. Tim Rinehart has done a splendid job of demonstrating how to use the Banksia Pods in the design of a Salt and Pepper set.

They are about 2 1/2 inches in diameter and maybe 5-8 inches long. The “eyes” work real nice for the S & P to allow one to see the inside a bit. They are fuzzy on the exterior but solid and dense in the center.

These look just splendid. Tim finished them to a high and deep luster.  None better!
A few items made by Tim from the Banksia Pod



There were some good Show and Tell items which were great. One was the terribly long spindle affair by Roland Hege:
Roland Hege shows his Very Delicate affair w/ tiny shafts (1/8")? between each "Spindle". They were held by multiple Thread Steady Rests with each section totally completed before the next section was started.


Next Demonstration and Workshop September 8, 2012 at 9:00 AM-2:00PM -You'll learn a lot!-Promise!

We will have a Saturday workshop on 9/22/2012 9:00 AM till maybe 2:00PM
