Wheel, wheel, wheel

I made wheels. Once upon a time, long ago, I made a cart for with my harness to show for a 4H show. The hardest thing to find for the entire project? Wheels. And that has prevented me from trying again. I really don't know what took me so long to make these...




Tadaaaaa! They come in 3 sizes because I couldn't decide and fit a 1/8" dowel through the middle for an axle. 

I shouldn't have looked to see if I still had pictures of my first (and only) cart.... But in the interest of science and showing the difference in wheels...




Maybe I'll try again at making a cart now that I've got some slick new wheels.

    1. Filament is in really short supply right now but I mainly buy it from amazon. I like overture's filaments and amazon basics (which is basically repackaged overture) as well as hatchbox. I've had some success with matterhacker's filaments and they have nice colors.
