Default My custom wood sides for throttle quadrant

Had to share my personal touch to the throttle quadrant I will be installing. It is Bolivian Rosewood which is quite heavy. I drilled out the backs to save some weight and am pretty happy with the result. Should look pretty sweet with my brown sheepskin seats and leather side walls. I even made a wood handle for the throttle lever to match.

I got it from an internet wood supplier. Sorry can't remember which one. I looked at a lot of different types of wood and liked the grain in this one.

You will love flying with the throttle quadrant! It really completes the RV!
