« Part 8: Finish up the roof - start on wheels Part 9 of Making Wooden Model Plans series no next part

The treads I made on the last post were just to big so sanded down one set and retreaded them.

Now these are the right size.

And here’s how I cut the wood down for my wheels.
I cut the board just a tad over size 2 3/4” then rip on the table saw using a rip blade that came with the saw and it does a pretty smooth job of it.

The project page is here.
