Default I need to make wheels for a tea cart.

Hello everyone. I am new as of today and I really look forward to getting to know this woodworking community. I have been a DIYer for years and now that I have retired I enjoy my woodworking more than ever. I have lots to learn for sure. I am a retired railroader, love God, Family, woodworking and gadgets. Fishing too when I can. I am currently working on a Tea Cart and I need to make two spoke wheels for it. I started to make simple solid wheels but LOML said it looked to Flintstone. So here is the problem. I saw the router workshop guys make some many years ago. My local PBS doesn't carry the show any more. If any one has a suggestion or tips I syre would be grateful. When the projects is finished I will post it to Lumberjocks aka QuickWay for all to see.

Depending on the tools you have you could turn the spokes on a lathe. As well as the center of the wheel. Use a matching forstner bit to drill the holes for the spokes. Then build the 2 halves of the outer wheel and drill for spokes and glue and clamp. It is a bit of work, but well worth the time and effort.

Wayne, I thought of that but I kinda wanted a solid wheel that I could cut spoke shapes into with the router. Maybe star shaped or oval, or tri-angle. Thanks for your reply. I am very thankful you took the time to help me out.
Thanks Bill

Earl, Thanks for the info. A template is the way to go. Something a little more basic for this beginner. Your Ships wheel looks great. Thanks for taking the time to help me out.

Not my wheel, you have to thank kp91 for that. I've got a long way to go to get to that point. I'm green enough right now that i'd have trouble making the plank!!
