Default Ship's wheel box

Just recently joined this wonderful group and enjoy seeing and reading about the great items being created. Been scrolling on and of for years on an old Craftsman. Turned 50 in October and a group of family and friends presented me a Dewalt 788, and the holidays brought a small band saw and a new camera.
That is my back story so now I will attempt my first contribution to the group.

Had an idea of making a ship's helm but wanted it to be a functional item. After some thinking and looking at pics this is what I came up with.It is made of Mahogany with a Maple base and is roughly 6" tall 5" wide and 1 7/8" deep. I think I need to do a little tweaking on the design for future pieces but being the prototype I am happy with the result.

Thank you, John

That's a great design and a great result John. Was it all done on the scroll saw or a combination of scroll saw/band saw. Thanks for sharing.

Very nice project John. That came out excellent. I really like that, my uncle would love to have a box like that... he is a retired merchant marine captain. Thanks for sharing this with us.
