Wooden Wheels with Bicycle Tires

The Way Out West Blow In Blog is about a couple who is doing the homesteading thing in Ireland.  Tim and Sandra have been at it for about 7 years and they’ve had some great adventures.

In order to succeed at this type of lifestyle, they have to make due with what they’ve got and figure out ways to solve problems.  Just as pioneer settlers did hundreds of years ago.

Recently Tim started a project that required some wooden wheels…but he didn’t have any wooden wheels.  He did, however, have some old bicycle wheels.  So he set out to make wooden wheels using old bicycle rims and, thankfully, he recorded the process.

The Way Out West Blow In Blog is not a strictly woodworking channel, but there are a lot of good videos on there.  You’ll especially want to check out the Workshop Projects playlist.
