Acrylic and Maple Joystick
Driven by my personal interest in the Street Fighter game series, I designed a joystick to use with Xbox 360 and PC. I machined the wooden frame out of a single piece of walnut hardwood with a CNC router, and created a pressure-fit, laser-cut acrylic top.
I tried two different color-ways. The first one used a red joystick ball-top and matching red buttons. The second color-way used a white ball-top and white buttons with walnut veneer tops.
