no the wheels wasnt hard Nayo, i cut the outer cycle out first then went to the drill press and drilled the spoke wholes, so they would line up whit the outter wheel and the hub, then cut the hub and rim apart with a scrollsaw, it was fun mama wanted it for the herb planter i was going to use it for a popery piece, but it has already found many use’s already!
