The light one is Spalted Maple, Hawaiian Monkeypod, and Paduac

Really beautiful ones. I have yet to try one, got the plans so maybe this year.

What size are these? I can never figure their size by looking at pictures.

Beautiful job on a complex project. Great choice of contrasting wood. I’ve been wanting to make one of these and your examples are great inspiration. Thanks for posting.
