Hi Willie
welcome to Ljs
This is very interesting ,so the wheel and rim are made from walnut? What does the wheel go to?
I’m not sure how the jig works either?

I just looked at your other projects now I know what the wheels go to,very nice.

Hay Williel, Congrats on the top 3. I had used that type jig for my early wagon wheels and I am now rethinking using something like it again to make “laced” spoke wheels for motorcycle tires and wheels construction. Thanks for the inspiration to put my brain in gear again. Now to figure out the details…..............
