Description

banksia d20s with turquoise inlayBanksia Seed Pods are, like all things Australian, murderously endowed. (Seriously, everything in Australia is deadly.) If you were to imagine the typical pine cone, innocuous enough, then add roughly 3 pounds of solid mass to it, you’d have the Australian version, known as the Banksia seed pod, poised at the top of a very lovely tree just awaiting the perfect time to come crashing down at terminal velocity on top of some unsuspecting soul’s soon to be crushed skull.

banksia seed podsAlright, so in reality the Banksia tree (B. Grandis) is more of  shrub so you are far more likely to have your toes nibbled off by this voracious Australian carnivore than to die from an Banksia pod inflicted injury.  B. Grandis produces the large pine cone like flower spikes commonly used in wood turning and is only native to the southwestern corner of Western Australia. Though it is grown as an ornamental shrub thanks to its large red and yellow flowers. Its seeds, like many trees in the American West, are shed during the brush fires common there. Once the seeds pop open the holes which Banksia pods are famous for become apparent.banksia seed pods on table saw

    Do y’all make d6’s in this color?

    • James

      Idiot. It’s made of wood.

      • Russ

        I’m pretty sure he was referring to the fact that they only offer d20s for sale, idiot.

  2. Joel Robey

    Any possible way to get a full dice set in this setup?

  3. Jace

    Wow that is maybe one of the prettiest dice I’ve seen from you guys.

    quoting a friend:
    “These are insanely beautiful. My first thought was, “Wow so pretty” but then my almost instantaneous second thought was, “Wouldn’t the weight distribution be off if the two materials aren’t the same density? That doesn’t work for dice these are only display things! Otherwise these are weighted dice!” Science needs to explain this to me if they expect these to be used. /glares”

      If there are multiple inlays of the Turquoise, then it would keep any individual inlay from off-setting the manner of roll. It would be an even amount of inlay that would keep it from rolling to any particular side(s).

    I would definitely like to get an entire set like this, but I can imagine the difficulty that would come with making certain ones.

    Looks like I waited too long. ETA on another batch?

  7. Ebany

    Will buy a set when you guys do another run, they look superb. Who could have thought those scrappy little spider attracting trees could look so good as die.
