Very nice…..I bet he loves it.I’m wondering if you spun the wheels on a lathe then sliced off 4 sections. If you did I’m thinking that you could use a wire burner to make cool looking treads in the tires.

Thanks, The wheels were made from a large block of Padauk I had in one of my scrap boxes.I cut them using a Holes saw and a mortising bit to make the Wheel Wells. I sanded and polished them using a carriage bolt on my drill press. Finished sanding with 300 grit and applied a Gel Varnish while it spun in drill press. This was a fun piece, but I prefer Intarsia.
