    Birdseye? Are you nuts? It would all have to be hand-scraped, and then not much would show anyway on small camera parts. It's fine if you want a personal
    woodworking challenge, but hardly a cooperative manufacturing material. You can always get bird spots for free if you set up the tripod under a busy tree.

    I know your question has been answered by Hugo, but I'll chime in anyway. I couldn't even tell you which one I got, but it was the one that I could get quicker. I think I have teak and sorta wanted the maple, but I'd have to track down my packing slip to confirm which I got. From pictures, I thought both were very pretty.

    It's basically a color choice. Pick the color you like best. I picked walnut, because I like dark wood.

    I think a lot depends on what color hardware the wood will be matched with. I think the maple with black is a bit too contrasting for my taste. I have the teak with gun metal grey hardware; it's a very sharp looking bit of kit...as they say.
