And in the category of trying something new, why not spin some walnut wheels up for it on the lathe!
First attempt at the skinny sets. Didn't work out the way I wanted so they got remade.
Drive wheels were a different story. I wanted some tractor lug style
patterns but have never been able to find anything close, so here's what
I came up with.
See the wire? Yeah. Thats the lug burner...
Didn't like these ones either, so I redid them with a bigger chunk of
walnut and a different lug burner made out of a sliver of sheet metal.
Pattern came out great.
Here's roughly what I'm shooting for.
Don't care to count how many hours I already have into it at this point... *sigh*
