A new tiller handle

My original tiller handle has seen better days, it is, I'm assuming, to be made up of teak and holly. At least it is a light and dark wood lamination. Due to being a budget sailor, I would like to make a new one out of maple and mahogany. Does anyone have any opinions and suggestions?

Don't have an answer to your specific question, but unless you really want to make one on your own, check out the prices from these people first. It's been a few years since I ordered one, but it was about $50 for a Cal 34 tiller.

I ordered one a few years ago from a company up in Oregon. The tiller was beautiful woodwork with a bronze sleeve for the retaining bolt. The cost was around $150. I can't recall the name of the company but found them on the net.

That should work fine. I once built one with just mahogany. Here is a link to a project that may be of use to you.
