It was then ready for me to cut the center out of the wheel. Too bad this one is pine, but I wanted a soft wood for the first wheel, so I could resolve all the cutting issues before I tackle hardwood turning issues. At least I’ll know any problems which occur on the next wheel, is wood related and not design related. I got two HUGE pieces of beautiful Maple wood from my supplier on the way to Vermont the other day when we took the car up there for service. There are pictures of this wood below. There is enough to make two complete wheels there. All for forty bucks!

We also got confirmation from two different farms, that we are definitely getting a Cotswold sheep and either a Teeswater or a Wensleydale sheep later this spring into June… Excitement down on the farm…
I cut the center ring out of the wheel before going to bed (see picture) and today, I’m putting the project on hold to expand a bit.
