    1896 Ford Quadricycle

    Here's an 1896 Ford Quadricycle I made. The wheels required drilling 136 holes for the spokes.IMG_20200113_161445_hdr.jpgIMG_20200113_161455_hdr.jpgIMG_20200113_161429_hdr.jpg

    That's awesome! Can't tell from the low res pics, how did you assemble the wheels? That's a lot of spokes!

    The wheels took a lot of time,after cutting out the wheels on my scroll saw I drilled 34 holes around the circumference of each wheel and after making a jig, I put one end of the spoke ( a toothpick) in the hole and glued each of the spokes individually to a center hub.
    The car is about 10" long , 6 " wide and 6" high
