NOTE: All the pieces used in this project are cut from 1x2 and 1x6 boards (see materials list).
Making the wheel
Cut six pieces of 1x6 board 12" long. Lay two pieces side by side, then glue (with exterior type glue) another two pieces on top running at right angles to the first boards. Then glue another layer on top of the first two layers, again at right angles to the layer below. Place a weight on top or clamp together and leave for the glue to dry.
When the glue is dry, draw a circle with a 5" radius (see diagram) and cut with a jigsaw. Drill a 1" hole (or slightly larger than the axle) through the middle of the wheel.
