Cool looking knob. Looks like it will fit the hand nicely!

That has to be the coolest shift knob I’ve ever seen.

Very cool! Love the truck too. How did you attach it to the shifter? I assume it is threaded? If so how did you make the threads?

Nice. I made a gear shift nob out of Osage Orange for a truck I used to have. Sold the truck and swapped the gear shift nob for the original. Now I have a gear shift nob and no manual shift vehicle. I’ll just keep it til I do.

Yours is much nicer. Great job and the trucks not bad either.

The wood is outstanding. Mother nature can really produce some great woods. You picked a great place to show off her talents and yours. I need to put one like that on my corvette but I should get the vette first. Nice project, Great creativity.
