Picking up on the previous shift knob thread, I thought it would be interesting to see everyone's shift knobs. I'll go first....

I should’ve got in on that group buy back in the day. These look better and better every time I see them.

I've had several in my car over the years, and change them out as the mood hits.

This was the first on of my 917 tribute knobs that I made. I don't use it any more, it sits on a shelf to remind me how far they have come over the years (I've made a couple hundred of them now...) This first one was literally made on a drill press using wood rasps before I bought and learned how to use my lathe.
(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/farm3.staticflickr.com-1435-1552586912.1.jpg)

I made this mushroom cloud and had it on the car for a long time, and switch it in sometimes.
(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/farm3.staticflickr.com-1435-1552586913.2.jpg)

I had a non-payment issue with the last run I made, so I stuck it on my car instead of getting mad. It happens some times. It was one of these, but I have no idea which one it was. (there is some camera distortion in the corner for some reason... They are all quite round. Lol)
(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/farm5.staticflickr.com-1435-1552586914.3.jpg)

I've made a bunch of other styles over the years that got tested on my car for fitment before I shipped them out. All of my stick shift cars have some custom knobs. Here are a few of my favorites...

I loved this one and would still be using it, but the material cracked in the sun. :-( This has been an issue with every type of resin pressed plywood/epoxy plywoods I've tried.

(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/farm6.staticflickr.com-1435-1552586914.4.jpg)

This was made from some spaulted pecan from a storm damaged tree in my back yard. Someone at meet liked it enough they talked me into selling it to them tight off my shifter stalk. I keep a spare knob in my glove box, as I've inadvertently sold a couple knobs this way and shifting without a knob kinda blows.
(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/farm4.staticflickr.com-1435-1552586993.1.jpg)

I wish I was better about photographing and archiving pics of my work. There have been some cool one offs that I wish I could look back on for inspiration.

I've been really considering this vintage Ferrari style shift knob 'cause it has the correct dog leg pattern and its looks chunky. Just wish I could find it in white to match my white headlight surrounds and other white details.

Actually I just checked the following link (again since several months) and they now offer a 5 speed dog leg TEARDROP knob... (5RUL model). And in various colors too. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/aktion035.gif)

This one (Wevo) has been my fave and in-use about 4-5 years. I also have at least one OE, a Momo aluminum 'ball', and a billet aluminum OE-style.
