Personally, I'd remove the stopper end and drill out the blank and market that one as a stick shift knob for some sports car.

Nice work. I have one made from manzanita burl, but it is just a plain state quarter. It isn't set in yet, as I don't know who will buy it yet.

Wow, what a great idea. I do stoppers too and never considered that. I even have a tap and die set.

Big Rob, dang, I knew I should have patented that idea.[:(!]

I think that would be really cool to have a car with a nice shift knob made up with some favorite emblem imbedded in resin or a state quarter of where you live or your birthplace.

Heh, I've done a bunch of them too. People buy them like crazy!
Ok, first of all; I'm not 100% in love with your tone right now.

I did a number of stoppers for Christmas this year with quarter inlays.

They were very popular with folks.

I like to Walnut nice color. Did you use a forstner bit to drill the hole of did you us a turning tool to make it?

I tried the tool at first and found it too much trouble and bought the bit.
