« Part 3: Turning the Mother of all Part 4 of Spinning wheel series Part 5: Dry what?!!! »

Did some turning and a little work on the bandsaw and drill press. I had to drill a couple of holes in the maiden support that needed to be 27 degrees off of 90. I turned the maidens that fit snugly in their new home. These do not get glued but just fit squeaky tight.

I turned to the bandsaw to rough out the 30” dIameter big wheel. I will get it doweled together and spend some time on the router tomorrow and get it finished up. I made this out of a nice piece of flat sawn oak. It should wear better than the Cherry

It is coming along well. Thanks for keeping up

Here is what it “should” look like when it is complete. Not the plan that I have but pretty close
