Finally I will quit adding to these wheels I THINK.
The black wheel at the top is made from all the left over and buggered up parts.
It’s been a great test bed for adding the next part as I feel my way though this.
I have stained it dark to see what that looks like then sanded off the side for the white wall look, so check them out and tell me which way you like.
Here’s the way I started out would have had a dark rim and then some bolts but then I went the other way and never looked back.
The center would have been lower.
Shots of the lag bolt build.
First I marked then set the drill hole so the bit wouldn’t drift.
Then drilled with the smallest bit I had again to stop the drift.
Then bigger bit to drill the holes deep enough for the tooth picks.
The round one was my test part.
Using that simple jig to drill the parts.
Through all this I never did say what wood this was, Cherry.
That’s all folks!
