Beautiful work, Man!
If I didn't have a shift knob picked out, one of yours would be my choice.

I have to say your stuff can make a lot of people happy that's for sure. The cookie cutter same old thing is getting old. You are doing some very cool and different work.

Hey Brian, thank you very much.. I really appreciate that!
I am not sure what cookie cutter you're talking about, but that does'nt matter.

I really just stumbled in on this path by a coincidense and I really dont have a clue on what is popular /done before or not.. I just do what pops up in my head.
Thanks again!

That is probably the best thing you can do!

I find it funny that when my brother was building his car back in the early nineties there were ZERO skull shift knobs, he couldn't find one and this was a very rare 1922 Buick Roadster so he knows how to find parts! But couldn't find a thing. He found a skull with a flat back like to hang on a wall at a swap meet and had a guy using aluminum weld the whole back of this head up to a big lump which he then ground to the shape he wanted and had it polished. It wasn't very long after that the rat rod craze hit and there were so many skull shift knobs on the market he took his off because it was like a belly button, everyone had one.

But yours stand out, they aren't "just a skull" they are really creative.

Brian

That is a funny story, but I guess it's like everything elseitgoes in cycles.
Thanks, it really means a lot!

A childhood friend and his brother is what I would call hardcore fishermen.. The older of them is making fishing baits so I thought I should make them a present (and yes I got carried away)..

Here it is and I call it : "Doombringer 1.0" (the radioactive sign is of course glowing in the dark).

I just finished sculpting this shifter for my firend... I's based on a logo I made for his business "Filthbreed".
I'll start on the mold tomorrow, and with some luck I can cast it aswell.
