I also decided to make a bowl from the wood, to get an idea of how it forms, but also test stains/lacquer and finish

There's a guy on here somewhere that has been building a wooden bike over a loooong period of time, can't remember the name just now. :39:

Just ruining a perfectly good set of cranks

I have 6 layers cut of the center, which is the width needed for the bottom bracket. Some more parts, including the bottom bracket will be in on Thursday or Friday of next week. I can't cut anymore till I glue and drill those 6 layers, so I'll be focusing on the wheels for a bit.
