Making a yoke - 737'ish
Started by laminating/glue 11mm MDF. 2 & 3 plates in each bulk:
Draw the yoke on top of the 3-plate bulk and made a 5-6mm track for later wiering:
Glued together both bulks (2+3) and draw the yoke on top again after 24h drying:
Sawed following the drawing. On the second pic, notice the hole for later wiering:
Roughly sawed the handles with the hole for wiering as referance:
Continued shaping the handles with a rough rasp(?). Things are getting into shape:
Here the midsection is getting right and I've altered the shape around the push button holes. 3 rounds with primer and 280 sandpaper. A stripped down networkcable is used for wiering:
Detailpic in button area:
3 rounds of Bengalack:
More to come... Sorry about the bad english

This is a really useful step-by-step photo posting that quite clearly shows that a 737 yoke can be made in the hope with just a little thought and effort, i really like the hi-gloss finnish, looks really professional, well atleast it saves £500-700 buying the usb all ready made yoke, which are total rip-offs!
Well done on the yoke, keep us posted on further progress!
It really looks great! Excellent work!

The finish is remarkable. Nice job! That is exactly was a freshly dipped and coated yoke looks like. That turned out nice.Boeing Skunk Works
Remember...140, 250, and REALLY FAST!
We don't need no stinkin' ETOPS!
