It's certainly pretty Brent!

I have a couple of questions though:

How does it work?

There doesn't seem to be a way of tightening the legs-to-hub joint, how do you eliminate slop here?

There is obviously a device to keep the legs at a set angle but no speader plate to tension them, how do you avoid looseness here?

These woods are pretty. Where do they come from? Not the tropics I hope.
