I like the chair. That really needs to be my next woodworking challenge – chairs. I’ve been making band saw boxes. Maybe band saw wheels are next. Good job on both.

it took me about two hour’s, thats drawing it out on paper then transfaring it on the wood, i didnt think about just glueing the paper to the wood, but once i cut the circle out i went to the drillpress and drilled the spoke holes, and then went to the scroll saw and cut the wheel and hub apart, it was fun!
thanks Ivan!
