here, is one i just finished for my dad for his birthday. i'm not sure what the wood is, it was deadfall that was pretty weathered, but still very strong. the bands are 5/8" gum rubber and the wrist strap is para cord in a portuguese sennit. there is no stain, don't need it on a natural with this much going on in the wood, and finished with 4 coats of hand rubbed poly. Enjoy, hopefully my dad will.
