Some time ago after I finished my scrapper I promised to make a blog about how I had made the wheels. Till now I was busy with other (wood) stuff, but this morning I made such a wheel and took some photos from it. The pictures aren’t from a high quality, but in this case it is less important isn’t it.

Some of you understood how I had made this heavy eguiment wheels. So this blog is in the first place more for the one who didn’t understand and had to wait such a long time. I hope the below pictures will help.

This wheel is made as an example and therefore it isn’t finished.

The glue technic I used is known as rubbing technic. Some segmented woodturners are using this method. I found a video from TexasWoodturner and here is the link.

Wow Dutchy, that is one helluva detailed build… All that’s missing is a substitute for the new tire ”vent spews” (hairs on the rubber).

Great informative blog and even I understood the Dutch photography.

I thought he was a Dutchman, but in this modern era, a new nationality is always welcome…

But, yes the “job” is incredible… workmanship/nationality… you decide!

Nicely done!
And one great how to!!
And to think this is just 1/4 of ten wheels, can you say labor intense!!!
But it make one out standing tire for sure!!!!

Dutchy you have the patience of a saint and skill of a true craftsman which is a great combination .
Some of us would consider this punishment and find some other way to make this but the results would certainly show the difference.
Keep it us and show us how to .

Hey doctor Saint Dutchy, this patient is asking if you take orders???

Sorry guys, but great work cannot be ignored… even by stupid feedback from this LBD.

Still great work on my third time reading…

Just reread my post and have no idea where I came up with 10 wheels must have been thinking of them going on a semi instead of the Scrapper.
