Are those Wheels made from Scrap Also? Not all that easy to do! Spare Tire even has Tred Showing.

What types of wood are used?

Thanks.

hey rick, the tires are made of walnut & maple . I started out cutting the walnut for the tires with a hole saw then i put the round blank on my wood lathe & cut the grooves out then i had to cut out the center for the rim . The rim is of maple . I used a wooden dowel the same size as the hole i cut out. Then i cut the hub out for the to go on the axel . I had to make a jig for the holes in the hub . I used round toothpicks for the spokes. alot of work just to make the wheels !!

Holy Mackerel Willie!! You’re right! That’s a lot of work for the Wheels!! BUT!! From what I see, TOTALLY worth the effort!!

You probably could of bought them at Lee Valley …... YOU did them Yourself!!

Nice Work!!!

Thanks for the “Buddy Up”. I’m Pleased to do the same!!

PS: Did you keep a few Toothpicks aside for Pickin’ Out the Prime Rib or New York Sirlion?? ...LOL…

yet another fine project, I usually buy spoked wheels if i need them but you have me rethinking that with the great looking wheels your making. I think once i get my shop built (recently moved) i might give them a try. in a few years when i get to making them as good as what i see here i’ll post some :)
