John Lucas; those are quite unique, wish I had some of that Banksia pod kickin around. I like using spalted wood for my wine glasses but sometimes that can be a pain finding just the right piece that isn't rotten.

You can buy Banksia pods at a lot of different places. I got my latest ones from http://bigmonklumber.com/ last time I was at a symposium and Pete and his wife were there.
The same technique will work with limb stock that is dry. Leave the natural bark edge on the top and bottom or just one place.
The best looking ones I've seen were turned from Burl but heck if I could afford that I'd buy really nice goblets.

I agree Bill, they look very good. Smooth transition between the walnut and the glass.

I am impressed at how you managed to turn the glass parts.
