Not sure what wood this is...let's just call it nice looking brown mystery wood. This one was unfinished and kicking around the shop for the better part of the year. Finished it off today & it looks good. Has a few small cracks but seems quite solid. I wouldn't be selling it if I thought they'd be problem.
This one is on sale as a result of those cracks @ just $49 shipped. https://www.paypal.me/rocketdog
I can always make you a custom shift knob too, just ask.
