If I had extra cash I would buy this in a heartbeat.

This is beautiful and the dovetail joints set it over the top.


#3

Thanks man, Learning to cut dovetails was far more challanging than I thought but it was worth the effort. :tup:


#4

Yeah, I do a little woodworking and dovetails are above both me and my equipment at this point.

A++ work though, really clean.


#5

EDIT: All my posts on this page are in reference to stick #1 which is no longer up…I’m editing here to avoid any confustion.

Damnit…I can’t stop looking at it.

Screw it…I’ll take it, with one change: I would like the stick but no buttons, I have a TON of buttons at home…and I need an extra stick just in case. I already have a hacked pad ready to go.

Hit me up with the new total (assuming its cool w you to do the stick and no buttons).

Let me know how to send you funds, I can do paypal or a postal MO, whichever you prefer.


#6

Nice SteveTren. Good Luck.


#7

steven can u put me on the list. thanks


#8

This is a good deal. Seriously. Nice case bro. I would charge more for work like that, next time. Ironically I recently bought some bocote to make a box with as well.


#9

jesus christ. that stick is beautiful, i would get it if i didnt have two sticks already


#10

Payment pending to parabellum…


#11

Thanks man, I love your stick designs also. If you get a chance someday pick yourself up a Leigh dove tail jig (they are the best) and learn how to use it. Takes some studying and effort but so much fun to cut dovetails and it looks fantastic.


#12

Payment sent.

:china:

Of course I’ll leave you POS feedback as soon as it arrives!

:woot:


#13

Is it possible to get one 360 & PS3 compatible? If so, sign me up for sure.


#14

Sure no problem but I have 1 zillion PM’s in my box asking for a custom. As stated in my first post I can only do like 2 a month as I work almost 14 hours a day as it is. I will try to help everyone but I am making no promises and I will not take pre-payments.

Thanks,
Steve


#15

Wow, that looks amazing. the craftsmanship is awesome. question, would future cases come with the option of an extra 24mm hole for a neutrik usb adapter?


#16

Would you sell the cocobolo TMO case with just the joystick and buttons?


#17

damn… those are pretty …

too bad i already have a U.S style Aiab stick and a TE stick :[


#18

Steve.

I used to be in your position. I used to make custom knives (hand forged by me), bokken, and I still make handles and habaki for Nihon-to (Japanese swords).

All I can say here is don’t take so much business that it becomes all labor and no love…and dealing with customers can take all the fun right out of it.

I may enter the ring on stick building in the not so distant future, but I will just make them and sell them, I won’t ever take comissions anymore unless its from close friends.

I wish you the best of luck, and if this stick is any indication, I’m sure you will do very well.

Steve! I see you live in Lextown. So do I! Too bad I play street fighter 4 on ps3. I have a 360 but do not play sf4 on it. I’m currently waiting on a custom stick from Lazeeya. I hope to get it soon. I’ll add you as a XBL friend. Good luck building. The stick looks great!
