First off, thanks to Hrawk for this fantastic design! These are a lot of fun and they may produce offspring yet in our care..! My lady friend really likes the "blonde." It's hard maple with 24 hour BLO soak. The other is white oak with ebony Minwax stain and soak. The red band's are Dayhiker's cut of Gold's gym red for 7/16" steel but great with marbles too. The other is blue Gold's gym cut at 1/2"×3/4"×10" doubled before ties. Thanks for looking!
