Oak Handles for Ships Wheel

Does anyone know where I can find some nice oak handles for a ships wheel shadow box. I've done a little net surfing but haven't had any luck yet. Any assistance is appreciated.

A/B,
Are you talking about small spindle like handles that would project out of the outside of the wheel perpendicular to the circumference?(Almost sounds like I know what I am talking about, LOL). If you don't do any turning, sounds like a good project for a friend that does. Give him a detail sketch and a case of one of Sam Adams seasonal beers and voila!.

Update

I was browsing through Home Depot and came across these small oak legs. I did a minor modification and think I will go with them on this project. After looking at it, I wish I had used 6 handles vice 5 but I wouldn't be a true woodworker if I didn't criticize my work..ha.

Anyway, I just need to finish up the triagle part to hold a flag and will be done with the build. Thanks for your inputs gents.
