Re: Sailboat Wooden Steering Wheels

From a cabinet makers point of view, that outer circular piece cost is the over riding factor.
BTW the best way to get longevity out of exterior bright-work is to completely seal it with epoxy; 3 coats, before applying a quality PHENOLIC varnish.
Why?
Because that will eliminate hydrodynamic expansion and contraction, which is detrimental to coating adhesion.
