This is a wooden scooter made of ash.
The wheel structure was inspired from this video.

Very nicely done. I really like your wheel design. Looks like wheels and platform were laminated. How did you do the axles?

Wow! You are so inventive, Boris. Every time you make a new project you lift woodworking to a new level.
Could you perhaps tell a little about the rest of the bike? It looks so cool and I might want to make one for my son..
