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.
