« Part 1: Take-off Part 2 of Wooden toys wheel making series Part 3: Continuation »

For the wheel grooves I needed a jig. Used my tractor wheel jig and made a little expansion. The pieces A,B and C are from the tractor wheel jig. Part D is new.

On the pictures below you can see how it works.

Thanks for watching
