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 made a spoke wheel this afternoon, had an idea in my head, it actually worked, forgot how you did yours so had to look it up tonight, nice work. My idea was different. I wanted a wheel with an outside diameter of 2 inches. This is just the trial wheel. It will before I choose and get a car built.

Nice to see yours Brian! A 2” is much more difficult than a 3” one. It would be nice it you are prepared to make a blog from the way you did it. In the past I had trouble with making the holes for the spokes perpendicular to the axle hole, how was that with you?
