« Part 27: Tyres Part 28 of The dump truck series Part 29: Small stuff »

This contribution about making the rims is equal to:
Wooden toys wheel making #5: Rims part 1
Wooden toys wheel making #6: Rims part 2

There are some small differences but not important. The making process is clearer in the previous contribution.

All comments are appreciated, special which I can learn something from.

Below the pictures of the process. The observant viewer will see that the tyres and rims are made at the same time. For clarity, I have divided it in two blogs.

Jan would it be possible to get a copy of your rim and lug nut pattern?
Was this T&J pattern or something you made up?
Really like the look of your front wheels.

Thanks in advance!

Great result. Judging from the look of the bevelled rims it seems to me that you are a master with that disk sander.
