« Part 290: We got 5 wheels Part 291 of Wooden Models series Part 292: Getting closer! »

I cut off the back supports and then it hit me I would like the front axle hubs a little farther in, but having cut out the backs was not sure how much the wheels could take.
I thought about drilling them but just one catch and I would be one unhappy camper, so I finally hit on using a router bit and plane it down.

I couldn’t go to far or the tooth picks would start showing up.

Just had to see what it would look like. lol

Looks like those wheels will work, but I think they need more spokes. ;-)

Looks great and fitting in all the toothpicks in is not an easy task.

Have your say...
