    Ya, I saw you had one in your collection there. I saw that one on e bay quite a while back. I commissioned him to do this one. He asked why when I carve my own. I said not as good as yours. His detail is amazing.
    What else you have there in that collection?
    Looks like you have some cool stuff there.

    Mine's from a 60's table centerpiece. A hunk of driftwood with these balls and some plastic leaves stapled to it.

    That shifter setup is pretty cool. Keep some numbnuts from driving it. :)

    there's a hamb member and good friend of mine, coopercustoms, he makes some badass knobs out of clear epoxy. Put whatever you can dream up inside it. You name it he's done it from bugs, eyeballs, even a pig testicle. I'll bug him to post some pics on this thread. He also does motorcycle grips with the epoxy end.

    Cool thread!I ran across this thread while doing a search for a wooden auto shift knob with a button..... In cherry.You guys with manual transmission have it easy!!!!!It fits the stock auto shifter (converted to 4 spd OD) and there's is no exposed hardware. The button functions exactly the same as the stock piece.I know it's not a "jalopy" but it's one of the recent custom touches I've added to the car in all years I've had it.
