    A little Huon Pine diversion from the main task. They’ll be incorporated into one of the versions. I thought I was done after doing over a thousand but I suppose another thirty six won’t do any harm.

    Meanwhile, I’ve been salting the copper spokes and progressively fumigating the wheels by propping them over a shallow bath of ammonia in a sealable container pinched from the kitchen

    Latecomer to this journey Springwater. Glad I found it, absolutely fascinating, and yes, Love the abandoning of the 90 and 45 degree angles

    I know 90 and 45 have their place but venturing into compound angled curves is far more exciting

    All the wheels done bar one which is having a meeting with ammonia at the moment.
