I have had a few pruning's of 'Banksia' for a few years and decided it should be dry enough to cut up and see what it was like to make a lure from.

This wood is on the hard side, but despite the grain was not too bad to work, and is a bit heavy at 12Gr for a 4" lure without the hardware. I might just stick this one in the cupboard. pete

Looks great Pete. Not even going to ask how you did the pattern on it. Probably wouldn't understand if you told me. :huh: Would love to see some different views of it.

Very well chosen piece of timber , Pete , ........ the grain pattern looks just great the way that you have separated and glued together again with the harness inbetween !

A pity , that it seems to be a bit too heavy for the purpose , as you've stated ,......... might have tried to cut some "air pouches" internally prior to bonding the halves , filling them with some foam stuff to prevent glue to flow inside ?

great work , ..........greetz , Dieter
