Crafting A Chevy Trucks Cowboy Boot Shift Knob

Custom Chevy Trucks Cowboy Boot Shift Knob

We take you behind the scenes of creating a unique Chevrolet bowtie Chevy Trucks logo shifter knob. This time-lapse demonstrates the meticulous process of transforming a simple idea into a stunning piece of functional art.

The Turning Process

The process begins with a chrome cowboy boot lapel pin featuring the iconic Chevrolet bowtie logo and “CHEVY TRUCKS” that has been carefully embedded in a base of black epoxy resin and layered over with clear. The first step is drilling and tapping the shift knob.

The meticulous step of truing up the shifter knob so that it is concentric with the mounting hole that was just bored and tapped is a crucial step that contributes to the overall quality and aesthetics of the final product.

Discovering Flaws and Adapting

No artistic endeavor is without its challenges. I encounter a flaw during the creation process — deep air bubbles — and opt to change the shape of the knob effectively eliminating the flawed areas. With that, the knob is sanded and polished.

Handcrafted Artistry

While the time-lapse condenses approximately 90 minutes of intricate work into a digestible viewing experience, it’s essential to note that this is not a traditional “how-to” video. Instead, it provides a glimpse into the dedication and artistry involved in handcrafting custom shift knobs right here in Missouri, USA.
