I ride a rip-stick quite often, and it seems like i’m always replacing the tires. This time, I decided I would go cheap and just try to build one. Here is the result: a mahogany wheel. It overall took around two hours to complete; it contains bearings and everything that is in a normal tire. Overall it was a fun project that “turned” out better than I thought it would. “Anyway, why buy a tire when you can make one?” Thanks for looking! DMiller

Not sure what a rip stick is but wood wheels are cool. Edit, I looked up a rip stick. Mahogany seems like a very soft wood for a tire. Still cool.
