« Part 65: Hummer Wheels Jig Part 66 of Toy costruction series Part 67: Start The Hummer One and a Two »

My last two projects have been mostly of oak and where that oak came from was a queen size platform bed I made back around 1995?
I was out scrounging a couple a months ago and came across a man putting out a very nice queen size bed, got it for the lumber but once the wife saw it and I knew she would she started cleaning it up and 2 hours later she had a new bed. LOL
So that’s why I got to building with oak and here’s the last part of it, I should have took pictures of the victim but forgot to.

Sanding the rims to fit inside the tire.

Here some pictures of the parts and I can see where if you were building 3 or more of these projects at one time you better be really organized or things would get out of control very quickly.

Made a jig to drill the lag bolts.
Have pivoting point so hole will always be at the same distance from the outside.
I made a pattern and would set the wood under it drill the first hole and then put a pin in it to keep the pattern and wood matched up then would go to the other side of the pattern and drill another hole and add a pin now the pattern will stay where it should.

I cut over 60 of those bolts and drilled that many holes and glue that many parts to come up with this.

I didn’t use tooth picks this time tried some 1/8” dowels just a little bigger and hope they don’t show up so white when done.

I still need to glue in the rim and the bolt center but not sure how far out I want the rim to be yet so will just wait on the hummer to tell me what it wants.
So they’re all sanded and ready for the truck.

I feel like I put more work in these 6 wheels than I did the cattle car and Lincoln combined.
Not counting the Lincoln’s wheels in that. lol

So now we start the Hummer.

Thanks hunter! I see all these wonderful hummers and other models and wonder how they get it done, well I’ll never know but maybe some will get some help or at least have a better understanding of what’s involved.

#4 over and out

Nice wheels, again. Your treading pattern sure looks better than the T&J suggestion. Hope you didn’t err like me and make 4 wheels of the same side. After making the complimentary side I have a spare set for another hummer however, they may be wasted as I would use your pattern if I ever made another.

Yon certainly may have put more work into this set of wheels Bruce, but IMHO they are very much the “bees knees” of wheels sir, excellent work, well done!!

I just got up from a nap and get on here and Ducky scares me to death, had to go out in my 100 degree shop and check that the wheels I had spent 3 days making and checked and rechecked were make in pairs just one more time. LOL

Been thinking about it but I’m wondering the whole truck is going to be oak what would a whole truck look like ebonized??? LOL

And then some one I won’t name tells me it stinks to a very high degree??? LOL

Now I don’t know which way to go.
How long does the smell last??

I don’t want no stinkin truck!!!!!!!!! LOL

Ducky you’re like me and we love our wheels how about making a display with all the different extra wheels we have made, to me it would make one cool picture but make it where you can change out the wheels as more become available.
And Hunter I’ll bet you could fill a whole wall with your extras.
What would be cool for you Hunter, would be a wheel wagon, the back of a wagon full of old wheels being taken to the retread station..
Just my $.02

I love it the ways you guys keep my mind thinking of new and different ways of doing things.

#4, With your 100° shop and ‘HUNTER’s 45° angels, I’m glad I live in a straight country where we only have to put up with idiotic polititians…

As for an all eb’s hummer… hmmm, think would look cool… Who’s gonna be the bunny to be the first??? Not this LittleBlackDuck :-) Wait til it hits 110°, then you can say the heat sent you tropo ar blaze in the glory if it works.

Ducky I couldn’t figure where you were getting the angels comments from and had to go read over your shoulder and find out where you had been to find hunters comments.
I hardly ever look at the forum part of the site but I guess I need to.
