For a long time I’m still like making wooden “toys”, but making a blog from every build can be boring. Not only for you but also for myself. Then I got the idea to make a TIP contribution of something that can be interesting for others. And I have been influenced for a large part by others. So dont be surprised if you see what others have invented long ago. But if I know who invented it, I will mention it.

I started with making a cheap (I’m Dutch) wooden steering wheel. The pictures will make clear what I mean.

Briliant tip (and idea).

I for one always looked forward to your blogs and will miss them if you start to hold back, however, I do appreciate the effort required to create one and the chunk it takes out of your life… not only were they interesting, they were stacked full of hints and tips and will be greatly missed.

BTW… here in Australia, contrary to common belief, we are quite progressive… How do you make a steering wheel out of a zipper?
