Looks like a hard piece of wood! What is it?

It's maple - not as hard as the cherry.

I've finally completed the cherry shift knob. Now it's time to find either a t-nut or rubber grommet and attach it to the shifter arm.





NICE.

Another WIP - it needs quite a bit of sanding and quite a bit more work on the teeth and flames.



My brother found 4 old pins and peeled them for me - this is just the first.

Just a couple more.

All of them are still in progress, the middle pin is far from done.

The pin on the right is finally ready for staining.

Nice work, love the pins. The golf balls are cool too. Once I tried to carve the core of a softball but failed miserably and gave up. Keep up the chizzling.
