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.
