Hi Frank,
     Your Marble Drop is gorgeous! I'd love to know what the different types of wood are that you used. Also, I can see you added dowel peg stops to each of the trays and it looks very elegant!
     Oh, and the video is awesome!

Hi Cynthia,
     I used poplar for the ramps, catch pit and then stained the dark color Cherry. The back is Maple 3/4 plywood. All finished with your beeswax formula.
