So far, we offer the POLARIS in stainless steel in various sizes. Now there is the POLARIS L sundial kit, which is even more versatile than the steel model. The "L" stands for "Lignum", the Latin word for wood, the construction material of POLARIS L. We use high-quality aircraft plywood, which ensures the stability and durability of the sundial.
