Over the past week, I took apart the frame and did final shaping. I tapered the legs some to give the base a more bulky appearance. This also shifts some of the weight to the base.

I added the bearings to leg #1 and #2.

I draw bored each leg to its corresponding base.

Each leg was labeled using traditional timber frame Roman numeral numbering.

The Flywheel was grooved using a series of carving chisels.

I created the mortises for each wedged through tenon and the frame was complete.
