WOODEN CART WHEEL

cart wheel

exhibition number: Agriculture 24.1

Oak spokes with an elm hub and ash rim. This illustrates the methods of construction through jointing. It also shows the accuracy needed for producing an item which might be considered only on its functional level. Note: This wheel is of similar construction to that of the penny-farthing on show. On loan from ED. HARRISON, the maker.
