See!!!  We have twin trees in the shop right now.  Aren't they CUTE!!!  (Well, everyone says that about newborn human twins.  Why not about new-made saddle tree twins??)  Here are a couple Wade trees with exposed, guadalajara shaped, Jarrah wood horn caps.  And they are totally identical!!

Well, except that one has a 5 1/2" horn cap with plugged screw holes, so this will be how it looks finished - except a bit shinier because it still needs more coats of varnish...

while this one has a 5" horn cap with open screw holes because it will have a fancy 3" horn cap on it when it is finished.

And this one has a 6" stock thickness and a 7 3/4" gullet height, and the horn is 3 1/2" high

And this one has a 4 1/2" high, 13" wide cantle at 37 1/2 degrees

while this one has a 4 3/4" high, 12" wide shovel shaped cantle at 40 degrees...  But they both have 1 1/2" dish!!

OK.  So maybe they aren't identical, but they are at least fraternal twins - right?

And with their hats on, they really do look the same...  Don't they????
