« Part 1: Rims Part 2 of Spoke wheels series no next part

The last time when I made spoke wheels I did it on my crossing table. This time I mainly used the drill press, scroll saw and router table. Below the pictures from how it was done. If you want to build the spoke hole drilling jig you can find a description on my website.

I think these tires and rims look very good Jan, but I would like them even better if the tire walls were slightly rounded on the outside to give an inflated appearance. I haven’t seen any done like that, but I do think it would give the tires an even more realistic look. This might be easier said than done so I suggest it as a challenge, and I can’t think of anyone better than yourself to come up with a practical solution.

Mike I know what your talking about and have been trying to round mine a little more but by the time I get to making wheels, it’s at the end of the project and start getting in a hurry to finish it up and start something else.
