Pics Of Blackwalnut Shifter

YA I do custom stuff for fun. When i was unemployed a few years back I was making a living doing this type of work.Thank you for your interest.
This shifter is extremely comfortable and gives you more leverage. I have 2 twelve year old walnut trees that were cut down for a fence years ago...this shifter is cut from one of the trunks...that explains the nice rings. it is mounted to an extra shift nob sleeve.

Ah, that's pretty awesome, nice little touch retaining the stock shift pattern, and polishing it :)

i like it... don't think it fits with the focus... but in an offroad vehicle i think that would look and fit pretty nicely... that's neat

Not at all what I was expecting - looks like a wooden version of a Hurst shifter. Probably real comfortable in the hand, what with the thumb and finger indentations and all.

And the polished and dinged shift-pattern desk looks really cool mounted there - like an old coin pulled out of a shipwreck.

I agree with nov173 about it not quite fitting a Focus, but I'm wondering if a blue shift boot might help bring the overall look together a bit...

Still really cool, and if you like it - that's all that matters.

But thanks for FINALLY posting pics!
