Default New blank

Always looking for something new to cast. Any guesses as to what the "dividers" are in this one?

I've been watching to see what the answer would be and I'm surprised that there's no feedback. I like the looks of the blank so I'm also curious as to what the material might be. I don't have a guess but I would like to know the material. Thanks

I also like the look of the blank. I actually saved the photo and tried blowing it up. It isn't bone, which is what I thought at first. Has to much chatoyance, (could just be the photo), so I have no clue.

Watching this, too.

Ahah! Dehydrated banana slices is my guess. It seems to be something organic.

I wouldn't have a clue But he's in Alaska! There's no telling what it is. The two times I was there I saw all different kinds of things for sale.

yup you guessed it dried banana slices. I work on the oil field and there is always mass amounts of food in our dining areas. I saw a dispenser full of dried banana and thought hmm. I stabilized it before casting and had no idea how it would turn out. Looking forward to turning it---now what kind of kit would work for that?? I did a little contest on my FB page and someone finally guessed it so I sent them a nice slimline out of birch.

Not sure about the kit, but segmenting with some Monkey Pod seems to be in order. :>)
