My brother wanted me to make him a new joystick for his Street Fighter game. This is what I came up with. This was a lot of fun to build and quite a learning experience. I routed the entire insides out by hand a little at a time starting from the middle and working my way out to the edges, both on the front piece and the back piece, this was the majority of the work taking about 3 hours to complete and making enough wood chips to bury my shoes. You can see in some of the pictures where the bottom can be separated from the top. He will put all the electronics in it and I’ll post another pic then. It’s made of hard maple with purple heart accents and finished with semi-gloss wipe on poly. Thanks for looking.

Just in case someone doesn’t know what these are or what they look like I’m posting what I used to come up with the design. These are pretty popular as fas as I know. They have tournaments for street fighter all the time these days and having a custom pad is pretty popular. You can buy different colored buttons and joysticks and even ones that light up or display a light show when you’re not playing on it.
