CUSTOM WOODEN SHIP'S WHEELS
A finely-made wooden ship's wheel becomes a focal point for your boat. Beautiful to look at, smooth, comfortable to handle, functional and durable in any weather – it is an elegant piece of marine hardware.
Each wheel is handcrafted using the finest tropical hardwoods and is varnished by hand to achieve the clients desires from a satin to high gloss finish. The wheels are built around a bronze hub that can be polished or chrome plated which may also be accented with decorative engraving.
A truly custom boat deserves a one-of-a-kind wheel. These exquisite wheels range from 6 to 10 spokes and are fabricated using a variety of wood types including teak, holly, ebony and mahogany.
