Our decorative wood ship wheels are skillfully made from quality shisham wood and assembled with plugged screw heads. The brass center hubs have uniform sizes holes and machined keyways. They are sanded and have a coat of lacquer that gives them a slight gloss and a clearly visable wood grain. They are beautiful pieces and will look stunning in your home, office or boat. These are for decor purposes and not intended for use on a seafaring vessel.
