Here's the process:
- Cut out a rough circle on bandsaw
-drill 1/4" hole in center of circle
-put a 1/4" bolt through the 1/4" hole and place wheel in drill press and sand off rough bandsaw marks, until round, keeping all the outside wheel circumference the same is important and can get tricky
-Cut out center circle of wheel with a hole saw
-Cut out spokes on scroll saw to fit inside hole in the wheel
-Glue spokes into hole I drilled into wheel
It's a pretty long and tedious process but I much prefer to make my own wheels

They don't make cars like that anymore, cars with real character and appeal.  You have done justice to an old icon.  Congrats.
