Handmade Banksia Memory Box
Banksia Handmade Memory Box
Banksia Handmade Memory Box made from the Banksia Seed that is unique to Australia. When the flower goes to seed it forms an enormous Seed Pod that is approximately the size of a large cucumber and similar in shape to a giant American pine cone. The oval shapes are where the seeds come out of the Pod and I filled with pearlescent blue resin for the unusual effect. These giant Pods are great for making unique items. This box features exotic purple heart wood trim for the vessel and the oak burl for the lid. The overall size is 2 1/4 inch diameter x 3 inches high. Inside dimensions are 1 3/4 inch diameter by 1 1/2 inches deep.
Extremely unique and wonderful earth tone colors.
Perfect small box to keep jewelry safe on a nightstand. Never have to search for your rings and earrings again. Just use this box and your problems are solved.
Great gift for a best friend, Birthday Gift, Anniversary Gift, Teacher Gift.
Not many wood artists can make this item or have access to getting the seed pod so you are getting something very unusual.
I design and produce all items on this website in my studio in Montvale, NJ USA. When you purchase from AATurning I guarantee that you will receive an original Alan Adler piece.

Care for your Box
- Keep out of direct sunlight
- Minimize exposure to wide swings in humidity levels
- Do not wash with water, if necessary use only a damp cloth
- Wax lightly with a quality food safe wax or oil and buff to restore the luster. I like beeswax, walnut oil or mineral oil.
