Custom Airplane Control Yokes/ Grips

Doing custom work is always an adventure. An airplane maker out of Seattle, Washington got in touch and wanted two matching teak airplane yokes. He sent a metal one as a model to base them from.

First, the layers of teak were glued up to create blocks. Then the band saw was used to cut out the profiles.

Next, the dremels, sanders and grinders were used to create the forms.
