For my new model I need some spoke wheels. Made from Merbau,Beech, and Oak. The wheels are 70 mm (2 3/4”). For drilling the spoke holes I made a jig for use on the drill press which you can find here

Here you can find the blog about the wheelmaking.

Oh great, now seeing these I’m intrigued and just have to get those plans to make this jig so all those darn ‘addictive to make’ toys can have spectacular wheels like these. I can only hope I can do as good a job as you!
